December Birding Notes

Wading birds and ducks are typical bird-types encountered in the wet areas.   Gray catbirds call from thickets, and ruby-crowned kinglets fuss from the trees.   A vermillion flycatcher may be here for one of its irregular Winter vacations.   American kestrels are stationed at their territories in the surrounding countryside.  Common yellowthroats provide a dash of color.  Late weeks have American robins being the most numerous area bird.
