Bald Eagle in MP and Migration Notes

Filed under: Bald Eagles,Munds Park Birding — Munds Park Birding @ 4:12 pm

Yesterday a fellow-birder posted a sighting on the UofA birding list of a Bald Eagle seen near I-17 near Munds Park.  Hopefully some of our year-round residents got to see it as well.  Here in Phoenix the weather is wonderful and I’m spending more time golfing than birding (when not working).  But this week on the course at 56th Street and Thomas I saw a small flock of Western Bluebirds – the first time ever for me for this species at this location.    And then to top it off, two Western Meadowlarks, also another first at this location.  Which makes me think – sometimes hitting in the middle of the fairway has its drawbacks.  It’s the walk in the trees that makes it easier to spot some of the migrating birds.  The other winter visitors that have shown up are the Ring-Necked Ducks.  Now it’s just a matter of time before the American Widgeons arrive.
