This Morning at Duck Hollow

This morning at Duck Hollow fifteen of us braved wind and snow flurries to look for birds on the Monongahela River and along the Duck Hollow Trail.

Best birds were a common loon, four horned grebes, two pied-billed grebes, eastern phoebes (new arrivals), and a red-tailed hawk on its nest at the Homestead Grays Bridge. Since both male & female red-tailed hawks incubate the eggs we don’t know which parent was on the nest.

As we walked back to our cars a killdeer flew high overhead, calling.

Thanks to everyone who braved the cold weather. Such a change from yesterday’s 60 degrees!
