This morning I headed out to bird at a few spots in Fluvanna near where I live.
The greater white-fronted goose is still at the big pond at the Lake Monticello golf course, and the woods near there produced a red-headed woodpecker that gave close views, and a red-shouldered hawk that was equally as obliging.
The Sycamore Landing Pond contained 4 hooded mergansers and 16+ buffleheads, the latter being a nice number for a very small pond like that.
Pleasant Grove Park was rather devoid of passerines this morning, although I still got close views of a hermit thrush.
Beach 3 in Lake Monticello offered distant views of a common loon and a coot, and the marina offered distant views of a tundra swan, the neighborhood's first sighting.
