I spent the last four days trying to keep warm while walking around the Pecatonica River bottoms. With the wintry conditions I was surprised about the number of Bluebirds flittering about. Robins were less abundant but still out there. Yellow-rumped Warblers were not seen until it calmed down on Sunday afternoon. Three were feeding on large clusters of Poison Ivy berries. Flickers and Bluebirds were abundant in that area also. Three Bald Eagles overhead at the same time were impressive. Pileated Woodpeckers were calling but keeping a low profile most of the time. Hardy Great Blue Herons and Belted Kingfishers were fishing where the springs kept the water open.
