I visited Lake Fayetteville this morning after a fairly long time. For the most part, the woods were quiet today with hardly any bird activity. It took me over an hour to find the first White-throated Sparrow of the day. Possibly due to a lull between waves of fall migrants? I started at the environmental center and walked around the eastern end of the lake to Veterans Park.
Some waterfowl were present on the lake - Gadwall (24), Ruddy Duck (1), Lesser Scaup (1), Pied-billed Grebe (3), Horned Grebe (1), American Coot (40).
An adult Sharp-shinned Hawk zoomed through the trees near the Mulholland Blind to catch an unsuspecting Carolina Chickadee.
