The first of December was forecast as a sunny day, so a bird outing was planned to take advantage. The forecast was off a bit - we had periodic misty showers during the morning, but … so what. All six enjoyed the one to two hours spent on the Royston Seaside Trail area, binoculars glued to the eyes, trying to identify the numbers of birds that were, for the most part, in the distance. Our list?...Gulls, Crows, Bald Eagle, Common Loon, American Wigeons, Mallards, Common Goldeneye, Hooded Merganser, Red-breasted Merganser, Bufflehead, Cormorants, Golden-crowned Sparrows, Kinglet, Canada Geese, Surf Scoters, White-winged Scoters, Great Blue Herons, Scaups, Spotted Towhees, Annas Hummingbird, Flicker, Robins, and Juncos. Photos weren't great this time, due to distance involved from camera to subject, but are included to show identifying features.
