A Little Birding

overcast 59 °F

A small road trip yesterday and very warm temperatures today has led to my seeing some birds. I haven't found anything rare; however, I thought you might like seeing these photos.

Because I didn't see any particularly rare birds, I won't have a "bird-of-the-day," but some of the highlights were the PINE SISKIN yesterday, a woodpecker trifecta I had today with DOWNY, HAIRY, and RED-BELLIED, as well as an unphotographed WHITE-THROATED SPARROW which is uncommon for this late in the season. I attached the eBird list for today only below.

Good birding,

Henry
