Huntley Meadows

Today I went on my first walk at Huntley Meadows in quite awhile. It is so beautiful! Although it was fruppin' cold today. We got some good birds, although I didn't get any good pictures, or pictures at all of most of them. We saw:
yellow-rumped warbler
killdeer (pictured)
yellow-bellied sapsucker (pictured)
rusty blackbirds (pictured)
hairy woodpecker
downy woodpecker
red-winged blackbird
American Bittern (two!)
Canada goose
tree swallows
brown creeper
white-breasted nuthatch
northern shovelers
blue-winged teal
green-winged teal
wood duck
belted kingfisher (picture)
hooded merganser, female


Belted Kingfisher

American Bittern, one of two

Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. The first time I've seen the red throat.

Brown creeper. Terrible picture, so you'll have to take my word for it. I saw it clearly through the binocs.

Looks like you have some really good habitat to bird there.
