Stoney Creek (Wintergreen) 2/26/12

Cool temperatures under bright and sunny skies made for a pleasant hike, but there weren't that many birds out and about this morning, even though I did see 25 species. Perhaps the strong winds of the previous two days moved some of the brids out of the area? It was good to see a Red-winged Blackbird singing next to Lake Monocan.
