Back yard bird count

Thinking that I should do this at the park this week end, probably should have done it today when there were no other people besides me and my husband and my park friend there to scare everything off. The temperature dropped 20 degrees from yesterday's 70, and the sky was overcast. No butterflies flying naturally. The Downy Woodpecker showed up today, had not seen it in awhile. The Red-bellied was around too but did not get photographed. The most numerous birds remain the American Robins and the Cedar Waxwings. They often seem to hang out very close to each other in the trees. In terms of numbers, the Myrtle Yellow-rumped Warbler and the House Finch probably come next followed by the Northern Mockingbird and Northern Cardinals. There were also American Goldfinch, but no pictures. I did not go to the area where I generally photograph the sparrows and towhees today. While they probably are where I was today, it is much harder to get to see them as the briars are so thick and I can't find an easy spot to get close to them. A Cooper's Hawk once again was obliging of many pictures. I was surprised to see a tree full of small birds right next to him. Don't think they were initially aware of its presence.

Descrição

The last picture is actually the first one I took. I thought I saw a hawk but the tree by it was full of small birds. Got to come in close and be right under it in the tree. Guess it's getting used to me. Glad he isn't like a blue jays that attacks humans when annoyed with us.
