On Monday morning we spent a couple of hours in Spring Creek Park. Although it was rather blustery, there were plenty of birds around: We ended up with 22 species, which I think is the most I've ever seen there. Unfortunately, few of the birds were in the mood to be photographed.
I got only brief glimpses through branches as this Cooper's Hawk circled overhead.
American Robins, Red-bellied Woodpeckers and Pine Warblers were the most numerous species, but we also saw several Downy Woodpeckers, Eastern Bluebirds, Northern Cardinals, Ruby-crowned Kinglets, Orange-crowned Warblers, American Goldfinch, Yellow-rumped Warblers and Carolina Chickadees.
The open areas had American Pipits, Eastern Bluebirds, Chipping Sparrows and a solitary Killdeer.
The Cooper's Hawk was a new year bird, as was this Northern Flicker.
White-eyed Vireo and Brown Creeper took my 2009 list to 89 species.
