A Snowy Egret, a Red-shouldered Hawk, and a Northern Mocking Bird were seen on March 16, 2014 and on March 18, 2014 here in my area. I spotted the egret on the largest rainfall retention pond here. The mockingbird was spotted perched on a shipping container in the parking lot of the health club that fronts this particular pond. The hawk was sitting in the old Pine Tree across the street from my house.
It rained in the last couple of days so our ponds have again filled with water. The hawk has been around here a lot – I think it is the same one that the crows have been after. I sure get a lot of enjoyment out of viewing the many birds here in my area! Pretty soon, I hope to be seeing more of the herons and Ibises here.
