We found a good size flock of them zipping through the Aspens, and pines in the park. We spent most the morning photographing them.
We spotted several other birds too. I managed to nail this photo of a White Crown Sparrow as it was just about to take off.
There was an old dead tree along the creek that had several Acorn Woodpeckers, and Starlings perched on it. Here’s an Acorn Woodpecker taking a quick break from pecking for bugs.
It was in this area we also saw several Anna’s Hummingbirds flitting around.
The Aspens in the park were at peak Fall color, and the Waxwings liked being in the yellow branches.
It was a very successful outing for birding, and a lovely way to spend two hours.
All the photos were taken with a Nikon D300s with a Nikkor 300mm f/4 lens, hand-held.
