So this morning I'm standing there all alone watching the sky for hawks and listening to the only sound in the park - a little bird squeekin' away in the big Blue Spruce beside me. At first I thought that it was just another chickadee but eventually it clicked-in that something didn't sound quite right with this one. I quickly searched the tree with my binoculars and eventually found the little fellow - a Tufted Titmouse! This is the bird that I've wanted to see at Rosetta since day one! Oh happy day!!!
bird species #210 for our 'Park' list!
Will look for it again tomorrow if the forecasted rain and/or snow allows me to.
Today at Rosetta we didn't have an 'Open House', instead we had an 'Open Door' and we used it to the max! Some people came and some people left (including me!) As wind for hawk migration was not in our favour today I and three others left the park to go view divers and dabblers out at Cranberry Marsh in Whitby.
