Bush Terminal Park

A short stint in midafternoon at Bush Terminal Park continues to produce winter gems. From rare waterfowl to corvids, even a brief birding visit is good enough at this park.

First in , at the dilapidated docks, the EURASIAN WIGEON was seen gliding across at the end of the docks. It was the only one of two I heard was seen the past weekend.This species was among ten duck species which seems an attainable number at Bush for every visit.

As I approached the cottonwood or Locust Grove I spotted a perched large corvid. It's a COMMON RAVEN . It flew to another tree ,pecking at something.

Also noted that I thought was good for the area ,8 RED THROATED LOONS either close or distant.

No rare gulls which was a hoped for target species.Next time.
