It was a dark and stormy morning... but the birding was PHENOMENAL! :)
I started the day with "Tan" or better said, our continuing "tan stripped" WHITE-THROATED SPARROW at our home, pecking at the seed I threw on the ground. Next, a visit to the cementary next to College lake, produced exceedingly close views of the 4 continuing CATTLE EGRETS. Using the car as a blind, the birds were at times less than 7 feet away. Then, a stop at Struve Slough behind West Marine, produced the 4 REDHEADS, 2 males and 2 females. I ended the morning at Lee Road and picked up a distant TROPICAL KINGBIRD before heading home for a delicious home cooked meal from Nancy. A great day inspite of the blustery weather.
