Birds Aplenty at November Fiorenza Bird Survey

Thanks to everyone who came out for this beautiful morning on Wednesday, November 27, 2019, at Fiorenza! The Wood Stork was a special surprise. Pipits and Yellow-rumped Warblers have arrived for the winter. Shovelers, teal and pelicans were prominent.
The next survey is being moved to December 24th at 7:30 AM. Hope to see everyone on Christmas Eve. The link to my photos includes a visit to Bear Creek Park after the survey where I found lots of Black Vultures having a meeting of sorts.
