This time of year there are so many errands to run and Christmas shopping that needs to be done. I would have liked to have gone searching for a Snowy Owl today, but I was so tired from two nights of insomnia that I just kept an eye to the sky while I was finishing up my shopping.
First, four Wild Turkeys flew across the road. There was a nice wide breakdown lane, so I pulled over and watched a male showing off his fan to three females.
Once at the stores, I saw several flocks of European Starlings flying around from fruited tree to fruited tree.
At the next plaza, Ring-Billed Gulls were patrolling the parking lot, and I do admit to tossing a few bits of my sandwich out the window to bring them in closer.
