Birds in the Bush


I wandered about after the massive Bombogenesis Nor-easter we had, hoping for some rarities.  While the rest of the east coast got hammered with rain and snow, we hardly had any precipitation, which was undoubtedly a good thing for the birds, but not so much for bird finders.  I can fool myself into believing my FoY kinglet is a sign of spring...(all these birds are winter residents)

Golden Crowned Kinglet

Tufted Titmouse


American Tree Sparrow

These 2 eagles were flying together, the juvenile following its bigger partner a bit above, when the adult suddenly flipped over and initiated what seemed to be a playful bit of air wrestling.  It was all very casual and a few seconds later they were back to soaring in tandem in a stiff northerly wind.
