Brown Creepers are a bit of a pain to photograph. They mock the camera with perfect camouflage and just when you have them in focus, they let out a shrill sound and zip to another hiding spot.
A murder of crows, a parliament of owls, a colony of gulls, a raft of ducks…but what would you call a collection of Brown Creepers? Over the weekend we had a fun (but cold) outing with our local bird club and while the bird diversity was a bit low, the birds we saw were enjoyable.
Spring is still springing, and we finally hit 70 degrees at the CNP. We have had a few new species since last Thursday. Hermit Thrush – a new spring arrival The yard has been so wet, a couple of Mallards landed nearby, not a usual visitor to the CNP. More rain (goodbye 70-degree-day) is predicted
