Weekend Birds

Much of southern Wisconsin was pummeled by another winter snowstorm today with accumulations ranging from 8 to 12 inches. Yeah, we beat the seasonal snowfall record sometime last week and now we have a decent shot at 100 inches before April. But yesterday was sunny and tranquil and I was able to get some birding time in at Pheasant Branch:

Cackling Goose
Canada Goose
Red-tailed Hawk
Rough-legged Hawk
American Kestrel
Rock Pigeon
Mourning Dove
Great Horned Owl
Red-bellied Woodpecker
Downy Woodpecker

Black-capped Chickadee
Tufted Titmouse
Red-breasted Nuthatch
White-breasted Nuthatch
Brown Creeper
Eastern Bluebird
European Starling

Dark-eyed Junco
