February 19 in the rain

After the strong southerly wind yesterday, I drove around some parts of Winnebago County to see if any new birds came in on the wind.  Hoople’s pond on Stephens Road still had 5 Green-winged Teal and I also found Steve Gent.

On Fish Hatchery Road, west of Winnebago Road, I found 5 White-fronted Geese in a flock of ~450 Canada Geese in corn stubble on the south side of the road about 1/2 mile E of Thedorff Road.

A Peregrine Falcon has been reported in downtown Rockford from time to time on eBird.  This morning, Steve called me to tell me that he had spotted the falcon on the Rockford News Tower.  It was still there when I arrived just before noon.
