A nice winter birding day in Tanglewood Park

Yesterday was a cool, clear and sunny day here in Winston. We spent a few nice hours birding along the Yadkin River in Tanglewood Park.

We were treated to several sightings of dozens of Cedar Waxwings. Here’s one:

    1. Well, after a fun masquerade party last night, I got to bed at 2 AM, then had to wake up early to go to work today. It was a little rough, but I did it! All in all, yeah, a good day today. Hope yours was, too! Happy New Year, Jennifer! 🙂

    1. Both Red-tailed and Red-shouldered are pretty common in our neck of the woods. Look up some pictures of the adult hawks to see why they are named the way they are.
      Thanks for the visit, Katherine! 🙂
