Forest Hills Cemetary

Jody and I explored a small area behind a local cemetary this morning with pretty good results. We almost immediately we saw a Wood Thursh with a huge bug in its mouth. Also saw (in no particular order) Carolina Chickadee, Red-bellied Woodpecker (gorgeous coloring!), Downy Woodpecker, Northern Cardinal (w/ young ones), Ovenbird, Catbird, Blue Jay, Northern Oriole, Robins, Chipping Sparrow, White-breasted Nuthatch, Turkey Vulture, and Common Grackles. Heard, but not seen today were Eastern Wood Peewee and American Tree Sparrow. Sixteen species in about an hour - not bad!
