Good Birds

White-throated Sparrow

It froze hard last night, so although the walking wasn't great, it was possible so I went out on a little half-mile count. 

250 Canada Geese

11 Mallards

Mourning Dove

Assorted small birds 

One Red-tailed Hawk.

And the highlight of the day, a male Common Merganser winging it west along the river. I saw him from the driveway so he counts, right? He is getting added to the farm count, which has stalled badly the last few weeks.

Downy Woodpecker

YAY! I'm been walking out and about again also. Sure helps with the winter drolls dumbs.

LInda, I have to be so careful. I have done away with the knee brace, as it was bothering my circulation, but it means I have to be so careful not to slip or misstep.
