Weekend Birding

I went birding at Pheasant Branch for a few hours yesterday, searching the prairie, creek corridor, and confluence ponds near Deming Way. I found a Northern Shrike, Chipping Sparrow, lots of American Tree Sparrows, only a few White-throated Sparrows, and several Fox Sparrows. At the ponds by Deming Way there were 9 Hooded Mergansers. Other birds included Belted Kingfisher, Eastern Bluebird, Brown Creeper, Tufted Titmouse, and a fly-over American Pipit.
