White Breasted Nuthatch at Quiet Waters Park.

I last posted about a week ago. The weather has been good enough, and I found a few decent birds, so it was a good week. One interesting thing about the pandemic is that many of my favorite spots are seeing a lot more traffic. Not a big problem so far.

Siskins and Nuthatches are still around. Otherwise, it’s just the regulars, although a few Tundra Swans have arrived. No decent images yet. It was way windy today, and the swans were somewhat distant.

I’m still staking out the feeder after checking for ducks, who should be in the area soon.
