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.
The Bald Eagle that I almost walked by without seeing.
A rather angry looking Wood Duck.
*new bird!* Hooded Merganser
Look at that long neck.
American Wigeon walking across the ice.
Red-winged Blackbird on an icy pond.
Great Blue Heron
The ducks found a hole in the ice.
This Red-tailed Hawk &American Kestrel were having a little tiff.
12 more days until the end of the year. Can I find 4 new species to make my goal?
