As you may or may not have noticed my favorite bird is the Northern Cardinal!!! What's yours?
Next we spot all kind of bird activity as we approach the tree line. There's Eastern Bluebirds, sparrows, Northern Mockingbirds, Cardinals, Pine Warblers and an another new bird Brown-headed Nuthatch! We now have all the nuthatches for this year! We are taking pictures of all this birds flying from branch to branch and really enjoying the moment when I think I spot a Red-headed Woodpecker. I try and focus in on him and I miss it. Unsure of the ID of the woodpecker we are also unable to count him in our big year. This is not the first time the Red-headed Woodpecker has slipped through our viewfinder, in Iowa we believe we saw him there and couldn't find him again. But this year is far from over and we will get him!
We watch a Pine Warbler jumping from branch to branch and then a Brown-headed Nuthatch flies in and chases the warbler away. Must have been the warblers branch! So that birding trip brings us up to 129! Tomorrow we plan on stopping along the way to Texas we will be driving through some swamp land and hoping for some new birds. I hope we have a good report of birds tomorrow for you all. Happy Birding!!
