Roadside Birding

We spent part of Sunday morning searching for waterfowl and shorebirds. Unfortunately, we didn’t find much of either and the weather was drizzly. However, we did find a few cool birds along the backroads of Winnebago County, Illinois.

March is coming to an end shortly and migration is really just beginning. We are getting excited for more birds to come through and for nicer weather!!

  1. My ex & I used to raise ring necked pheasants. I got really good at being able to sex them by sight after a while. I even had one as a pet for a while. He’d hop up on my arm so I could hand feed him.

  2. Mon@rch – Thanks much – this is a fun time of year although the weather could be a bit nicer more often 🙂

    Zen Birdfeeder – The pheasant was showing off and did indeed provide some much needed color!

    Lana – How cool! Pheasants are neat birds even if they aren’t native.
