|Having some fun with a pet bird, "Wheezy" at the "Hawk Watch"|
The winds weren't really great for migrating on Sunday, but lots of fellow bird enthusiasts were there! I usually only get out to the park once or twice while the watch is going on and I really enjoy my time there, as it's great to catch up with people I don't see often and meet new people as well.
We got to meet Jean Iron this visit! That would be like a Kiss fan meeting Gene Simmons, for a birder.
Despite the not great bird count, we had a great time and stayed hours longer then we planned on.
Please enjoy a few photos from the day.
|Lot's of fellow "Bird Nerds" lingering about.|
|Monarchs were plenty at the park, I probably saw a hundred or more.|
|Always a treat to watch Hummingbirds buzzing about.|
|This Peregrine Falcon caused lots of excitement when he was spotted in the park.|
|The squirrels were around to see who had peanuts for them.|
