Subject: [AZNMbirds] Arthur Pack Park, Bronzed Cowbirds
Two days in a row Bronzed Cowbirds joined the grackles at the 9th hole pond of Arthur Pack Park. Today there were 6. They show up around 5PM and roost on the wires before going into the reed beds.

Waterfowl numbers are way down after the cold spell, Northern Shovelers are down to 110 after being over 200 recently.

There was a pretty good show watching Vermillion Flycatchers and Say’s Phoebe “Sky dancing” through swarms of insects. Such contortions!

Yesterday the crossbills returned to the pine on the corner for a short visit.
