Just for the heck of it I thought I would share some recent shots of some relatively common birds from my pre-work stops at Van Saun Park, mostly because if I don’t use them in a post like this I don’t know what I would use them for. Enjoy!
House Finch Haemorhous mexicanus (click for a bigger version)
Red-breasted Nuthatch Sitta canadensis
Northern Mockingbird Mimus polyglottos
Northern Flicker Colaptes auratus
Chipping Sparrow Spizella passerina
Northern Cardinal Cardinalis cardinalis
Rose-breasted Grosbeak Pheucticus ludovicianus
I love getting some birding in before work!
