A Walk Around the Pond: February Birding by Ear

a group walking on a paved path around the pond, using white canes. Photos of various birds border the central shot.

The pond at nearby Sterne Park usually has a fair share of Canada Geese and Mallards, and today was no exception as the group walked the path this morning.

Birding by Ear started up again today with a visit from Ali Mayes of the Bird Conservancy of the Rockies. Though it was warm, not a great variety of birds are around in February. In the photo above, a number of shots are “montaged” into the image as follows: Clockwise from the top left, Three Crows flying among the tree branches, Two Mallards swimming toward us on the pond, a close-up Mallard drake with his green head,Two Canada geese swimming on the pond, One crow flying between the branches with outstretched wings, Multiple geese and ducks on the island, and A goose making a big splash in the water.

Today’s list was short:

  1. Black-capped Chickadee
  2. Canada Geese
  3. Mallard Ducks
  4. Crow
  5. Redwing Blackbird
  6. Northern Flicker
  7. House Sparrow
  8. House Finch
