Winter is a great time to go out and see what birds you can find! Not all birds migrate during the winter (although some migrate down from the upper north to visit us during the winter months) and those who stay can start a great foundation on the start of a birding year-list (I'm up to 27 so far this year). With the bare trees, it's easy to notice any unusual movement or fluttering, that's how I spotted this Northern Mockingbird pretending it was a snowball at Barnes Preserve.
Since 2015 we have been exploring and sharing all the amazing things we’ve found in nature.
