This interesting winter has extended into central Alabama! On January 6, we found a juvenile Tundra Swan on a small lake (Spencer's Pond) just south of the Hale-Marengo County Line on Alabama Highway 69. The bird is still there (photos on eBird). Then on January 7, we found a single Sandhill Crane on Hale County Road 9 between Co. Rd.'s 10 and 16. It did not hang around, but flew east toward Whitsitt. And finally, an immature male Indigo bunting showed-up at our feeders on the 8th and is still present (photos on eBird).
