pair of scaup taking flight
I did however encounter an American Woodcock, as seen in this poor photo. Other birds included a few Northern Cardinals, a couple of Black-capped Chickadees, Downy Woodpeckers, and a couple of Northern Harriers, two imm. Bald Eagles, and a Rough-legged Hawk.
imm. BALD EAGLE
There were very few geese. I was hoping for White-fronted, but no luck. I had a flock of twenty two years ago which was a record high.
With the strong east wind, there was no sense in checking out the other side of the park, so I made a quick check of Spice Bush Trail entrance. I came across an Eastern Phoebe near there.On the way home I decided to check out Ridgetown Sewage lagoons. Hardly anything there, but near there heading home, I spotted my first male Eastern Bluebird of the year.
At home I still had a few Pine Siskins and a Common Redpoll.
