As soon as I walked in, I spotted a pair of Eastern bluebirds perched high in the treetop near the visitor center, a great start to the walk!
I heard this bird long before I could spot it.
Song Sparrow (I think) Well in any case, it is singing!
Not sure what this is, maybe some kind of mallard hybrid. But I don't think it's a ruddy duck after all.
Seems a little unfair to hunt from a nesting box....
Assume this is a red-tailed hawk, but am not sure since I never saw its tail!
