Birding Near - Sweet Springs, a beautiful misty morning with an incoming tide. The only sounds were those of the birds. High in a tree came the penetrating sound of a Northern Flicker - music to my ears.
In the reeds, Common Yellowthroat and Song Sparrow. From a Eucalyptus on the edge of the water came the grating call of a Belted Kingfisher. My euphoria was interrupted as an Osprey silently passed by - always a pleasure seeing this powerful raptor. (photo by Jerry Kirkhart)
