Spring Birding at Garden in the Woods

My first visit in 2013!  I wasn't sure how much would be in bloom since we are having such a cold spring, but it was absolutely beautiful AND I saw my first Barred Owl!  WOW!  That was worth the visit alone!  So lucky the crows were mobbing it.  I would never have found it without their help!

Eastern Phoebe

White-Breasted Nuthatch


Now....I was really tired of walking at this point, but suddenly, some crows started cawing up a storm and in the middle of the cawing was some HOOTING.  Well, my energy level spiked and I ran like crazy to the area where all the noise was coming from and saw my first Barred Owl!  Very exciting!
