Beginning Birder Class, Huntley Meadows Park
I went out with a beginning birder's class and learned alot about binoculars, scopes and looking for and identifying birds. No new birds for me, but some good pics and a nice morning outdoors. In addition to the pics that follow, we saw a northern flicker, canada geese, a downy woodpecker, morning doves, redwinged blackbirds (of course). Disappointly, the Canada goose nest that I pictured earlier in the month, with the goose "feathering" her nest, had been abandoned. No sign of any eggs.
