Sometimes it pays to save the gas and just stay at home.
While studying on my front lawn today I had occasion to observe in my trees
and bushes the following birds, including some high above in "my air space":
2 separate flocks of Northern Rough-winged Swallows, Bald Eagle, Black and
Turkey Vultures, Laughing Gulls, Am. Crows, 2 waves of Cormorants in V
formation, Osprey, Red-shouldered Hawk, N. Parulas, Yellow-throated Warblers,
Black and White Warbler pair, Yellow-rumped Warblers, Glue-Gray Gnatcatchers,
Prairie Warblers, Tufted Titmice, N. Cardinal pair, Carolina Wren pair, Downy
Woodpecker pair, Red-bellied Woodpecker pair, Blue Jays, Brown Thrasher pair
bathing in my bird bath, House Sparrows who arrive every day one hour after
sun up and leave half hour before sun down, Ruby-crowned Kinglets, N.
Mockingbird pair, flock of Cedar Waxwings who like me to squirt water at
them, Mourning Doves and Eurasian-collared Doves. All within a 4 hour
period. (And I did get some studying done as well.)
