80 birds and counting

Posted by Kirk
I'm off to a good start this year. Yesterday I hit the 80 bird mark. On my way in to work Monday I spotted an American Kestrel on the phone line on Norell Ave. That same drive I saw two Sandhill Cranes fly from the pond across from the entrance to the nature center and head in the direction of the prairie or Alder Bay on Terrapin Lake. It wasn't a great view of the cranes but good enough to count.
Yesterday (wednesday) I checked the bird feeders before leaving work and there were several fox sparrows.
