Happy New Year!

NewYears2014 024E

Frosty weather persists and a snappy walk through the park revealed only a few hardy birds. Of course there were many Mallards by the river and one Canada Goose picking its way carefully along the frozen river as well. There was a group of Common House Sparrows that were sheltering in some bushes as well as a pair of Cardinals. I decided to take a closer look at the sparrows to distinguish them from other similar small birds especially since they were posing so cooperatively.
