Breaking Good

Not new, but a favorite, a Savannah Sparrow

The unseasonable heat wave broke and left us with cool, bright sunshine with a brisk and vigorous breeze. After all the recent not fun we have had birding public spots, I took myself to the base of Seven-County Hill seeking new birds.

Got a couple, maybe three, but mostly just enjoyed the incredible day. It was cool enough to make the walk easy,  birds were singing, and traffic was fairly quiet for a change. I took a short video of a Cottonwood shadow dance. Turn up your sound for a taste of wild Northview. Extra points for naming the bird singing....

***Update, yes, three, including an Alder Flycatcher

Oh Joy! What a delight. I'm so poor at flycatchers. What a unique and beautiful place you inhabit.

Cathy, it was a great walk. That isn't him in the video, just a random...I think Song Sparrow, but with an odd call. Probably anyhow. The Alder was back on 7-County. Heard an Eastern Wood Peewee on the same walk, but down by the barn.

Agriculture, farms, greenery, barns, breeze, wild birds and nature, and all you have seen in one that is your family farm. You are lucky. Nice blog.
