We birded the center section of Alton Baker Park this morning. It was cold
and the birds were hesitant to show themselves. It did not get much
warmer, but the birds did come out. The trees and bushes were loaded with
berries. Robins and waxwings were taking advantage of the inventory. The
feeders across from the canal attracted finches, juncos and crowned
sparrows. We ended the morning with over 40 species; a good record for a
cold foggy morning.
