Sparrows return-They brought friends
I spent about 2 hours on the trails at my local nature center, Oxley. We have had our second "cold" front. It was 88 two days ago and today's high was only 66 so more birds are joining us. With most of the leaves fallen, I had some really good looks. I have listed the notable ones below.
Some sparrows are really stuborn however. They were scurrying through the fallen and matted tall grasses. This behavior is very much like a Henslows but they weren't making that muffled hick-up. They were just running under the grasses. Henslows just don't want to come out of the grass.
Red Tailed Hawk
Ruby Crowned Kinglet
White Crowned Sparrow
White Throated Sparrow
Red winged Blackbird
I have marked the new additions to my local list and several are additions to my year list as well. The weather was absolutely perfect. This spot is a mere 10 minutes from the airport and the only draw back is the air traffic overhead.
