Our Regulars

It was cold this morning - a little colder than I thought it would be. 33 degrees, clear and sunny.

The upper and lower gardens were so quiet. I only managed to see a few song sparrows and a robin. Heard a chickadee calling.

The soccer field and pond area were quiet too. Heard a goldfinch and a titmouse, but never saw them. Only some robins and song sparrows hopping around in the leaves.

Most of the action seemed to be in and around the river area. From the dock, I saw four hooded mergansers - 3 males and a female hanging around on the opposite side near the edge of the river. They were beautiful. Geese and mallards were flying low, up and down the river. I guess their breeding season is almost upon us.

Lots of chickadees, juncos and a male cardinal hanging out together near the picnic tables. Saw one American Tree sparrow.
