Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Stewart Park / Fall Creek Highlights
Today, I heard a bluebird in a Sugar Maple outside my window in Fall Creek,
first time!. I usually see them around Boynton Middle School in years
past, and today I saw a pair today down near the inlet near the fire
practice area with two finches that had a rosy blush on the chest. They
left before I could get my binoculars on them.

At the Fuertes Sanctuary, I came across a Red-tailed Hawk resting on a log
near the water. Looked like it had just eaten given blood stains around
its mouth. I could not see perfectly without a scope, but from the black
and white markings, size, and shapes, it looked like there were many Hooded
Mergansers and possibly four Buffleheads.

Could hear lots of starlings and blackbirds along the inlet, mourning
doves. I'm finding I am getting lazy when I hear a bird I know the call
of. I don't even bother to pick up my binoculars any more. I guess I
should because there might be other species mixed in. Gorgeous day
nonetheless, hope everyone got to get out or will get out soon!
