I went on a 2-mile walk today near the Campbell Creek Science Center, very close to our home. The day was mostly cloudy and mild in temperature (about freezing). Birds were in short supply.
After walking about a mile, I did finally see a few Common Ravens flying over, and then saw an American Dipper that was constantly diving and putting its head under water.
When I reached the Science Center, there was a small flock of Black-capped Chickadees and a Boreal Chickadee, but otherwise, I did not see or hear any other birds on the walk. It’s good that it was a nice day for a walk.
