Double-crested Cormorant - eight flew overhead
Osprey - 3, thanks Tom!
Red-tailed Hawk - Tom's effort too
Cooper's Hawk - another from Tom
Merlin - and another
American Kestrel - spectacular male (slaty-blue and russet-orange) perched in the courtyard
Herring Gull - the gulls were feeding on a swarm of emerging crane flies?
Killdeer - still up to three hanging out in the parking lot between A-21 and B-25
American Robin - flocking and feeding on Russian Olive fruit
Tree Swallow - two, over the Education Center
Gray Catbird - also consuming fruit from various shrubs
Black-capped Chickadee - seen at the feeder, and elsewhere
White-throated Sparrow - here for the winter
Dark-eyed Junco - also here for the winter
American Goldfinch - a few coming to the feeders
Common Grackle - big flock down at Tom's building
Unfortunately the House Sparrows heard that we were filling the feeders again, and emptied them in short order.
'til next week
