One chilly morning I walked around one of my favorite birding places. Much of the water was ice, but there were plenty of birds hanging around. It was a good walk for seeing large birds. I saw a bald eagle, blue heron, one red-tailed hawk catch breakfast & another one getting pestered by a kestrel.
I went to The Duck Pond again to find this week’s birds. I saw some great birds, including what I thought was a Red-tailed Hawk, but turned out to be a Cooper’s Hawk. My favorite birds of the week, though, were 2 juvenile Great Horned Owls I saw up in a nest. I haven’t seen many owls & this was only my second time catching
This week I have only 1 new bird, but it is one of my favorites: the Great Blue Heron. This was, by far, my favorite Blue Heron sighting. Typically I know I better snap a pic quick because it will fly off any second. Not only did this guy not fly off right away, but he let me sit & watch him for about 20
