Recap of Birds I Have Seen

I have spent more time reading other people’s posts and and have not been getting out and posting myself. It was a shocking reminder to get moving and maybe catch some birds during migration a couple of days ago when the temperature dropped to an overnight low of 3 degrees celsius. Weather should never stop me but I did get an extra blanket out of the closet and hunkered down for the night.

Today my post is about looking back at what I have seen in the last few weeks. Some may be new, and some may be repeats.

Oh, there are two young ones following Momma Ruffed Grouse.
She is making noises to alert the chicks to stay in hiding.
Immature Ring-billed Gull soaring on the wind, almost completely still at times.
At first glance I thought this might be an Eastern Kingbird because the breast is so white and the tail has white trim as well. Otherwise I think it would be a Phoebe.
Juvenile American Coot sunning on some driftwood
Red-necked grebe further out in the water
A curious Black-capped Chickadee
We saw this squirrel carrying a young one up a tree, then she came to check us out.

I am planning to visit a friend who has her family’s trailer parked at a lake south of where I live. This has always been a good place for birding and I am looking forward to our visit and shared photo shoots in a couple of weeks.
