RBA Trip • Nations Road • February 6

Sunday afternoon, Mary Flood and I attended the Rochester Birding Association field trip to Nations Road. Although I didn't keep a bird count, I do think we saw at least eighteen species (see below). There were a lot of highlights, with Wild Turkeys, White-crowned Sparrows, a Red-tailed Hawk, a Rough-legged Hawk, and, of course, the Short-eared Owls probably being everyone's favorite birds of the day.
