We might blame the fog for the short list of birds at Buford Park this morning, where it was very gray and very still. Initially, the oaks held a flock of very active Steller’s Jays, robins, and Varied Thrushes. Here, we also had a Hairy Woodpecker, creepers, and a pair of White-breasted Nuthatches.
