We went on a birding walk today at Fort Buenaventura with the Wasatch Audubon Society (WAS)… We saw a wonderful variety of birds!
Hope you enjoy this little trip!
We saw a lot of Robins and Starlings. The fellow was so cooperative that I had to take his pictureI have to admit that this was quite a thrill! I’ve seen lots of Great Horned Owls, and Owlets in the Hay Barn, but this is the first time I’ve seen them nest raised! And what cute little babes they are! Mama was quite pretty too!
And I think this may be a female American Goldfinch or a Lesser Goldfinch? Feel free to let me know if you have a better identification!
A male Downy Woodpecker…
I wasn’t able to get a good picture of his lady friend, but we did see her as well!
This is a White-breasted Nuthatch… Quite rare to see around here!
And here’s a new bird for my collection! It’s a Brown Creeper! This little guy moves fast! I was lucky to get any shot of him! (Sorry it’s a meh photo!)
We also saw several Song Sparrows, a rapidly disappearing Kingfisher, some species of hawk, a Northern flickr, and some Mallards. ,
Thanks for visiting!
