A diminished pandemic and a beautiful morning brought out eighteen bird folks to one of our favorite venues. A number of great sightings included Snail Kite, Northern Harrier, and Sora. Seen here in Gabriel Harrison’s photos.The northern most pool features a sluiceway at one end of a pond and a dam at the other end. Several good sightings occurred there. A Greater Yellowlegs rested on one leg near the sluiceway. This pair of Northern Shovelers was “shot” by several folks at close range.
Just before leaving this spot, a flock of Cedar Waxwings was spotted across the pond. Here is part of our group looking at them as they (the birds) rested in a Long Leaf Pine.
It was a most enjoyable and productive morning. In all, 60 species were recorded.
