Stoney Creek 12/30/12

Well, I thought that my posting from two days ago would be my last one for 2012, but the wintry weather moved up the coast leaving us with birght sunshine and brisk winds. Although the temperature was 40 degrees when I went for a mid-afternoon hike around Lake Monocan, the wind chill was probably in the teens. I ended up with 15 species. There were two small clusters of Red-breasted Nuthatches - the first in the pine trees at the end of my street, and the second in pine trees along Stoney Creek East Drive. My 15th species of the day was a Great Blue Heron.
