Karen and Harney and I walked and birded along the Des Moines River in Des Moines this weekend. Noteworthy finds yesterday were a single NASHVILLE WARBLER and a HERMIT THRUSH. This morning was quite chilly, and we found two cold-looking ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLERS, a female/imm. PURPLE FINCH, and a pair of RUSTY BLACKBIRDS perched high in a tree. On the home front, our back yard is still nuthatch nirvana, with at least two RED-BREASTEDs still making themselves at home with our resident group of WHITE-BREASTEDs.
