Stopped by the pond at Trolley Bed Road here in Woodbury and saw, amoung
other birds, a red shouldered hawk perched in a tree. I then saw ripples
in the water and saw either a muskrat or beaver swimming and then
stopping. Then the hawk 'jumped' down into the water but left empty
handed. Could the hawk have been going after the 'rodent'?
Also saw: male/female hooded mergs, great blue heron, red winged
blackbirds, grackles, 2 palm warblers, robins, Canada geese, mockingbird,
starlings, mockingbird, a woodpecker, and a killdeer flying around calling.
