Bird Sightings 1
Well - might be time to start the series up again?
No bird pictures on this post but I have a few sightings. I do have a photo of a Luna Moth.
First, which I am excited about is the return of my Juncos. They're B A C K........
And, with the Juncos, my hawk is back. I wish I had my camera as he was sitting right between one of my feeders and the double suet feeder.
Heard an owl about 2 weeks ago in the early morning.
Last Saturday my observations from 7 to 8:00 am brought the following:
White-breasted nuthatch (1)
Carolina Chickadee (4)
Downy Woodpecker (2)
Hairy Woodpecker (1)
Red-bellied woodpecker (2)
Tufted Titmouse (4)
Carolina Wren (1)
American Goldfinch (13)
House Finch (10)
Mouring Dove (3)
American Robin (12)
Blue Jay (2)
American Crow (2)
Northern Cardinal (5)
Assorted Sparrows (too many to list)
Black Turkey Vulture (1) (it swooped in very close to where I was watching) which was unusual.
Gone are the Brown Thrashers, Gray Catbird and Hummingbirds.
On a sad note - I had a Song Sparrow drown in the pond. It was probably brought down by a bullfrog.
Luna Moth (From August 2008 ) I meant to post it sooner but you know how that goes sometimes!
