An early January thaw…

It’s a damp and dreary morning in Estabrook Park, but the temps are mild, and the wind is light, so not a bad time to visit at all. There were plenty of birds out and about making the best of the situation, but I didn’t expect my camera to do well in the low light, so I left most of them alone. Luckily, I have a couple pictures left over from yesterday when the sun was trying to peak through the clouds.

First is this handsome male cardinal sampling some kind of berry.


And here’s one of several starlings looking spectacular in the same tree.


Finally, the great horned owl was back, looking regal as ever, and that is always worth a shot, even in the low light.


That’s it for now, and I get one more chance tomorrow morning before Anne and I are off to Big Bend National Park for a few days. If I see anything there, I’ll let you know.
