13, 2018

After seeing good birds in the yard, I walked Knob Hill for several hours
today. FOY birds were: 2 Winter Wrens, 11 Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers, 4
Hermit Thrush, 1 Yellow-rumped Warbler, 13 Ruby-crowned Kinglets, 1 Fox
Sparrow, 3 Field Sparrows, 4 Northern Flickers, 4 male Towhee (saw females
there previously), 2 Eastern Phoebe, 1 female Red-winged Blackbird, and 8
Cowbirds. Amazing numbers today. A beautiful day to be outside, and to
think we wore gloves birding at Cedar Creek on Wednesday morning!

ball fields parking lot, along the Knob Hill Trail, Shadow Wood Trail,
DeArment and Summit Trails, and along the disc golf course perimeter. I am

park, and they were in these particular areas in great number.
