Highlights of the 5+ hours I spent birding in my yard on Sunday morning were - 
1 Hermit Thrush2 Lincoln's Sparrows2 flyover Pine Siskins
and the single GOLDEN EAGLE that passed in a line of Red-tailed Hawks and 
Turkey Vultures pretty close to the noon hour.  I tried to get a photo of the 
bird, but I succumbed to the bane of all photographers - the dead battery in 
the camera.
