Still there....................


The Gyrfalcon was still there. I hadn't seen it since early March and had been back 2 times unsuccessfully. I was surprised to read on other blogs it was still around...........

We had just missed it consuming an unfortunate immature gull. It was just sat around in the grass.....................


It was a cold windy day (it snowed quite a lot later) and I don't blame it for hunkering down out of the wind.....................

Still here...........................


A male Crossbill in the park near my apartment this afternoon. One of only 2 left seemingly.................

The park is now snow free and not much rain so far this spring means it was full of kids so the Crossbills were pretty wary. The ground was absolutely littered with pinecones................

Not much else aroud, just a few Dusky Thrush.
