Seems like the birds are beginning to return to the feeders more this wknd. Maybe they knew the coldfront was coming through and wanted to stock up? I’ve been seeing a lot more hawks around lately too.
Kasey & I took a trip to the Hop-In Wildlife Refuge this wknd hoping to see the Sandhill Cranes that migrate there every Winter. Not a crane was to be found though. I guess I was rushing the season a little. I normally don’t see them till Dec. but with the nice cold air and sun shining this wknd., I couldn’t stay in the house. (those who know me, know I love to go Go GO!)
Even though our crane hunt was a bust, we saw plenty of hawks.
A few birds of another feather that we didn’t have to leave the house to see.
The bluebirds are still around on warm days…

Here’s a few shots from previous excursions to the refuge to see the Sandhills.
