I have been trying to stick to my promise of walking around the river daily as long as the weather permits. So I have decided that I may as well keep a closer eye on the birds that I see there. So I will begin my own count. Yesterday there were 6 Bufflehead Ducks and a Great Blue Heron in one of inlets on the North shore. Turkey Vultures are notably absent and I didn’t seen the Heron this morning so it may have taken off, but we’ll see!
