Western Prospect Barren

November 15, 2020

I hiked the western end of the Prospect Barren in excellent weather but alas there were few birds to be found. Black Ducks, gulls and a few flocks of distant Snow Buntings were all that presented themselves. Nevertheless my heart and lungs thanked me for the effort. Exercise is more important these days with viruses that attack our lungs.

At home in Portuguese Cove we have the usual late fall visitors; Pine Siskins (my spirit bird), Goldfinches, hordes of chickadees, Red-breasted Nuthatches, Hairy and Downy Woodpecker, Mourning Doves, Purple Finches and the greatly appreciated adult male Cardinal.

A flock of Snow Buntings never came close so this cropped photo is the best that I obtained.
