Hi, all!

Birded Frontera Audubon Thicket and Valley Nature Center today; nothing out
of the ordinary, but had nice looks at Clay-colored Thrushes and "listens"
to a couple of Wilson's Warblers at VNC. Big excitement was a big female
Cooper's Hawk that made a couple of passes at a pair of Belted Kingfishers
at Frontera! Despite the cold weather there were a few butterflies flying as
well. Some pictures can be seen on my Facebook page:
