A Carolina Wren was calling around 0715 this morning along the creek by the westernmost parking lot (the one with the large pile of wood chips) at Anna Page Park. 2 calling Red Crossbills flew over from further east but didn’t stick around and kept going west. Barbara and I tried to find other crossbills in the park around 1100 but failed to do so.

Jeff Donaldson told me that he had 4 Evening Grosbeaks fly over Severson Dells in the past week, but they kept going.

Be careful out there this weekend. It is the opening weekend of deer season.
