Great Backyard Bird Count 2021

Waiting out the ice storm until Monday, I got some time to walk the Glade today, just before the rain came back. Sixteen species, a couple of bad photographs, but a distant look at a Hooded Merganser (Lophodytes cucullatus) pair on drawn-down Lake Audubon. But I missed my usual Red-shouldered Hawk.

Unfortunately, there is much more Leatherleaf Mahonia (Berberis bealei) than meets the eye in the growing season.
