Sweet Air Bird Walk

Cold temperatures and overcast skies held down the bird activity a bit but none the less a good trip with some nice birds. Most activity was in the field edges and hedgerows. The forest was very quiet. The surprise of the trips was several flocks of very high migrating Common Loons. Also great scope looks at singing Eastern Towhees.
