There are lots of red-bellied woodpeckers (like this male,) all year round, everywhere around here.
Huge numbers of yellow-rumped warblers Winter here.
Northern mockingbirds are a year-round sight. This one was particularly tolerant and patient.
Out in the marsh...
Hundreds of American coots come every Winter. During this visit I noticed lesser scaup, blue-winged teals and redheads among the flock.
Common moorhens are also a regular, Winter sight.
In addition, a lone, Caspian tern was fishing and dozens of tree swallows picked insects from the air. Both are also Winter visitors here. I'd hoped to see one of the Wintering bald eagles again, or perhaps one of the year-round resident great-horned owls, but it was not to be.
Regardless, it was too nice an afternoon not to take advantage of the opportunity to get outside. Unfortunately, once again, our temps have fallen & clouds have moved in. Again I am housebound.
