I had a brown creeper in the yard today. The song sparrows and juncos have been joined by white throated sparrows and chipping sparrows. Under the feeder was a reddish bird that I thought was a fox sparrow, but it turned out to be a brown thrasher.
I went to Brookwood Gardens. Sad to see so many trees cut down- lost a lot of nesting places. There were lots of birds, but my binoculars are being repaired so I couldn't really see well enough to identify most of them. I could hear a red-bellied woodpecker and a YB sapsucker. As I walked down the trail I was surrounded by small birds, chipping sparrows, about a dozen ruby crowned kinglets and others. I think there was a loon out on the lake- it sat low in the water, but without my binoculars... Hope I get them back soon.
