The McBone Birdwatching Journal; Birds Sighted

The blinding sun made birding a challenge this morning here at the manor and at the Celery Bog, but there were some highlights mixed in there:

Great blue heron
Green heron
Hairy woodpecker
Red-headed woodpecker - Check out this elusive bird, brought to you in grainy yet breathtaking HD video:

Blue jay
House wren
House finch - see nature at her least majestic.  Still, even the unsung female house finch deserves her 15 minutes.  We give you 45 seconds in crystalline high-def video:

Female maybe, but certainly not a lady.

Mourning dove
Mallard duck
Tree swallow
Ruby-throated hummingbird
Field sparrow

Happy long weekend, McBoners and fellow birders!
