Jesse Jones

I managed to squeeze in a half-hour walk around Jesse Jones park this morning. As usual, the park had mainly yardbirds and other common species: Downy and Red-bellied Woodpeckers, Northern Cardinals, Eastern Phoebe, Carolina Wrens, Blue Jay, American Robin, Yellow-rumped Warblers and Pine Warbler.

Less usual were the three good views I had of Hermit Thrushes.

The highlight of the walk was a very close-up view of a Yellow-crowned Night Heron, bird #143 on my 2009 year list. I could have taken some great photos - if only I hadn't left my camera at home!
