Tweets – it wasn’t too cold, and it wasn’t too windy, and we only had a dozen snowflakes this morning, under a high blanket of clouds. It was pretty birdy at times, though this being February, there wasn’t really anything unexpected.

a.. Wood Duck – pair in slough
b.. Wilson’s Snipe – about 6 below the weir, including four that gave us very good looks
c.. Cooper’s Hawk – adult in willows below the slough
d.. Hairy Woodpecker – one very low in the willows, from the boardwalk
e.. Pileated Woodpecker – one heard distantly
f.. Bushtit – flock below the weir; our first after a two week absence
g.. Varied Thrush – two males SW of the windmill
h.. Cedar Waxwing – about a dozen SE of the Dog Meadow
i.. WHITE-THROATED SPARROW – one tan-stripe bird at the NE corner of the Pea Patch, with ten White-crowned Sparrows
With today’s sighting of CEDAR WAXWING for Week 6, we’ve now seen them during each week of the year, at least once over the last 25 years.

The only notable misses were Hooded Merganser and Mew Gull.

A late scan of the lake turned up about 4 SCAUP sp., 2 COMMON MERGANSER, and a single RING-BILLED GULL. These late additions brought our day’s total to 62 species! But nothing was new for the year.
