Back to normal

Yesterday was a very strange day. We returned to walking the northern part of the park and it was almost totally devoid of birds and bird sounds. It was eerily quiet. Only the Mallards were hanging about in the creek. There were no raptors, no robins, mockingbirds, white-winged doves, cardinal, none of the regular birds. It was a sunny day in the 50s. Don't know where they all went, but they were back today. Today was warmer, in the low 60s and sunny. There were many robins, cedar waxwings, yellow-rumped warblers, cardinals, mockingbirds, chickadees. Some of the cedar waxwings were putting on some kind of performance which looked potentially like a courting ritual, jumping up in the air off a branch and returning to the same spot. They were doing this in twos. The red-tailed hawk was back in his tree but took flight as I tried to get closer for a picture. Spotted a red-bellied woodpecker in the top of tree on the other side of the creek. Caught a glimpse and unfortunately not a very good picture of a dark eyed junco down in the briars. Haven't seen one of them in almost a month. Felt better to have things back to what has been a more normal state of birds in the park.
