Out in the Garden today with a group of volunteer education program guides, we heard some of our resident birds. It wasn't the focus of our program, to be sure, as it was an orientation series, but I noticed the uptick in calls, with another mild winter day.
Our resident Northern Cardinals, Carolina Wrens, and Tufted Titmice were actively calling, along with a flock of (seasonal) Cedar Waxwings foraging for fruits. We're hearing woodpeckers and our resident red-shouldered hawks, too, calling as they're foraging or hunting.
I received an excellent link to a Bald Eagle webcam today at Norfolk Botanical Garden (courtesy of a botanical sign company). Checking it out was amazing -- I guess with bald eagles that they reuse and repair their nest year after year, so the web cam works, but totally cool.
Here's the link to the Eagle cam info page. It takes awhile to load, after you click on the web cam link, but is well worth it!
