Did you take some of them home with you? At 1445 yesterday all I saw were the waterfowl and two Blue Jays. Had just come from my second sighting of the day of a Steller's Jay perched high in a tall conifer across US 89 and a couple hundred meters south of the Free River Fishing Access Site.
Will be looking for your posts from the north end of the county.
15 species during the 1035-1145 time period today topped of by a single Blue Jay (last bird observed) and a Sharp-shinned Hawk flyby. Wood Duck numbers seem to be down a bit, with only ten males counted on a slow drive by.
- Debbie & All,
This area was very quite during my forty five minute (1050-1135) visit yesterday. A couple of chickadees and redpolls. Did have a Rough-legged Hawk (new park bird)chased by a couple of crows flyover to the northwest.
First Blue Jay showed at 1128 and the second at 1135; at which time I headed south of town to the Livingston Ditch headworks for my weekly American Dipper fix.
