Grebe and Crossbill weekend!
This warm weekend had me attempting to do a little birding! Was able to find my first of the year Horned Grebe (CHECK) on the Allegheny River while in town yesterday! Many Black Ducks, Mallards and Common Mergansers were also found in the area! This morning I felt a little antsy and took a walk around Red House Lake with only a few Juncos flittering around. Of course, a bunch of White-winged Crossbills was in my back yard pines (great thing to find once you get home)! . . . . But WAY up at the very top of the trees! I had horrible lighting and bad positioning for an attempt for a photo. . . grrr so I decided to post this bad (but still better than today’s) White-winged Crossbill photo that I captured a few days ago! They are on the ground when I don’t have my camera but 100feet up in the tree tops any other time! I am still working on the Crossbill photos my friends! Then while visiting at my mothers house . . . she had about 30-40 Pine Siskins in her back yard (you guessed it, no camera). Guess being in the back yard was the place to be this weekend!
