[Not sure why this didn't send yesterday, but here it is anyway]
On the way to a bit of shopping during the intense rain, I stopped by Lakeside Park for a moment mid-morning. It was pouring down rain, the wind was blowing pretty steadfast, and there was an occasional snow flake mixed in. My car thermometer said 39 F.
There was a BONAPARTE'S GULL [as reported by John Higgins], VERMILION FLYCATCHERs, GREAT-BLUE HERON, GREAT EGRET, BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON, a vocal BLACK-TAILED GNATCATCHER (near the parking lot) and a bedraggled and thoroughly soaked duo of COOPER'S HAWK and SHARP-SHINNED HAWK on the telephone line along the south shore.
