Despite the cold, it was like “old home week” at the pond this morning with the pair of canada geese, the bachelor mallards, the wood ducks, and the pied-billed grebe. Plus the male red-breasted merganser was back along with one female mallard. A male belted kingfisher stopped by, but went away hungry.
Further into the park, towards the river, I spotted a pair of Eastern phoebe’s demonstrating their flycatching prowess to each other, a golden crowned kinglet, and a pair of american goldfinches feasting on the branch of a tamarack tree just starting to leaf out.
Finally, Chet was back in the lower unit again, but he had no visitors that I saw this morning.
As always, I try to curate the best pictures on flickr at
