In contrast to yesterday in which the skies had virtually no birds flying in it, today the skies were filled with birds. The first bird of the day was an adult Bald Eagle flying over the parking lot. Then a few minutes later a small group of Herring Gull flew over. Shortly after that I heard the very familiar sound of Horned Lark flight calls. I was easily able to find a small group of 5 larks flying overhead (finding larks on the wing is not always easy to do!). Later in the day I heard larks again. This time the flock numbered at least 10. And Shortly after than I heard the flight call of an American Pipit, then 9 more gulls, a flyby American Kestrel, several groups of highflying geese, another eagle, an so on. So, as you can see, I got a pretty good workout with birds on the wing today. The (grainy) photo above is part of the "herd" of American Crows that frequent the perserve.
