While slowly cruising Armitage Rd. yesterday afternoon, I kept hearing a
RED-TAILED HAWK constantly cheeerrrring. As soon as I spotted the bird,
3 other birds flew up to it wondering what all the fuss was about -
GOLDFINCH, CEDAR WAXWING, and a tiny BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHER that appeared
to look the hawk directly in the face! The hawk apparently didn't like
the crowd and promptly flew off.
Sara Jane and I were treated to good looks of a LEAST BITTERN at Larue's
Lagoon. We got to show the bird to a family from Florida. It's really
nice to be able to get out of the car at designated areas along the
We, too, saw large numbers of GREAT EGRETS at Knox-Marcellus.
