Today’s walk was with BPQ. It was cloudy a first. Later on the sun came out. It was a nice day for a walk.
We saw a lot of Red-winged Blackbirds calling along the path.
In the distance, on an island, we saw some Great Blue Heron nests.
We found a pair of Hooded Mergansers swimming and diving looking for food in a pond.
There were Song Sparrows singing along the trail.
A few Black-capped Chickadees were flying around.
Mallard ducks were found here and there along the path and in the water.
A groundhog was spotted in the brush.
A Norther Flicker landed on the tree next to us and was gone in a blink of an eye. A Pileated Woodpecker was so busy pecking, that he didn’t notice all the people looking at him.
An European Starling landed on the tree next to me.
A female House Sparrow was perched high up near the top of a tree.
Along the river, there were Buffleheads flying upstream and then dive for food. While they were diving the water current would carry them back down stream. I tried to get some BIF (Birds in Flight) shots. I need much more practice.
In the distance, we saw some Lesser and a Greater Scaups and Goldeneyes. I manages to get a shot of an immature male bufflehead.
That all for today’s walk.
