This Morning at Carlos Avery WMA

Well, I finally got out to do a little birding this morning. My Father and I headed up to Carlos Avery for a couple of hours and had a pretty good day. We spotted a Great Horned Owl (no photos though), a Pileated Woodpecker, a number of Pheasant, a flock of about 35 Common Redpolls, and 2 Northern Shrike. Overall, I would say it was a pretty good day for only a couple of hours looking.

Here's the Northern Shrike:

I'll post a picture or two of the Redpolls in the next couple of days, once I get through all the photos. Hope you enjoy!
