a false spring day in Prospect

The REDWINGED BLACKBIRDs were fooled today, singing away  while a lone COMMON GRACKLE chipped at West Island. Fellas,it's still only mid winter.

A gorgeous day and winter birds were active. A mass of gulls were on the lake ice,nothing special though plenty to see regarding numbers and longer scope scan. Beyond the park limits,  two PEREGRINE FALCONS perched midway up the BBGarden Fire communications tower. On the lake, I see a Drake BUFFLEHEAD by Three sisters Islands.

It may not be long off with this abnormal weather that the first spring birds will head around our corner.
