I've seen large flocks of birds in my yard and flying through the yard today. I've got 60+ juncos, 60+ house finches, had about 70 cedar waxwings fly though as well as robins and starlings. Had 15 mourning doves. Just lots of birds. Which has attracted a mature sharp-shinned and an immature one.
I've been checking out Lake Sherwood daily as I have permission to bird from neighbors backyard. I've seen the sandhill crane every morning for about a week. But this morning he was gone. On a whim checked the lake at about 2:30pm for new arrivals and there he was walking around on the ice picking at things on the ice. I wonder how long he will stick around. Here is a video of him from a few days ago: https://youtu.be/xEAk8cUyH54
I've also been enjoying the 17 trumpeter swans that spend the night at Sherwood. I'd never really heard them trumpet until this year. Such a joy. I was able to get this nice video of them 2 days ago: https://youtu.be/4lLExKBLB-M as they swam right by me. Love these birds.
