Arcadia Trail Park

The previous two days were about 10 degrees cooler than today and totally overcast and damp. There were many more birds in the park in those two days than today when it warmed some to 60 and the sun broke through for an hour or so. On the cloudy days, everywhere I walked there were birds singing/calling. Today it was quiet in many parts of the park. Two days ago there were several woodpeckers at various places in the park, Downy and Red-bellied although possibly a Hairy as well. None here today. There had been flocks of Cedar Waxwings and Robins but far fewer today. The Red-tailed and Cooper's Hawk were both flying today although did not catch the Cooper's in a picture. Yesterday watched the Blue Jays harrass the Red-tailed and get him to fly off. Saw a couple Red-eared sliders on a log today but they quickly slipped into the water and out of sight when they saw me approaching the creek. First sighting of turtles in this creek in weeks. There have been a handful of Orange Sulphurs flying, they have only had dandelions for nectar but in the last couple days the Brown mustard has begun to flower. The House Finches and Myrtle Warblers continue to be numerous as do the female Red-winged Blackbirds. Still no sighting of a male Red-winged Blackbird. The White-winged Doves don't seem nearly as numerous as they were and a few more Mourning Doves are here.
