upper lobe bridge - quiet, quiet
upper lobe viewing tree - at first quiet, then grackles and robins
quiet again, then here come the "biker gang of grackles"
because they were being hunted by a cooper's hawk!
found the hawk perched inside that little lawn there
it flew off again, we lost it, hopefully it found a tasty lunch!
over to near tupelo
nuthatch way across, high up (spotted when looking for a flicker that flew in)
decided to go over to the oven
on the way
sat on the rocks for a while, saw a couple of different wrens, one got chased over to us
okay, heading over to the oven
azalea pond - kinglets! at least one ruby crowned - there were i think about 5 of them right there
wrens - they are everywhere!
the wren that forgot it was supposed to be hiding
cruise by the feeders, chickadees and i think goldfinches
really a lot of activity - we spent some time just taking the wide view and noticing the amount of activity all over the field, the feeders, the trees, without trying to id individual birds, it was cool
okay, now really to the oven
sat on the concrete step
yellow rumped warbler (?)
flicker flying into the brush right by us
leaving the oven, heading out - to the fountain then across to the bridle path, up to 72nd
on the way out, golden crowned kinglets!
looked like about 3 in a tree zipping around - they are way too fast!
