Today I birded in the rain. Walked woodlots and along streams getting soaked. The rain turned to snow and still I walked and rode around looking for birds. Interesting were the number on NORTHERN FLICKERS we saw – 6 in total. Also, a RUSTY BLACKBIRD flew towards us and landed on a telephone wire right overhead. Later in the day, I found a BALD EAGLES nest with two adult BALDS. It is fairly close to the road and would have made a great picture.
