As I mentioned in a previous post, I work in a building located along the Norwalk River and take the parking spot farthest away from the building’s entrance. I’m always on the lookout for birds in or around the river. Today the birds were pretty good to me.
A peregrine falcon perched on the Yankee Doodle Bridge, a belted kingfisher perched on a piling and two male hooded mergansers hugged the near coast of the river. Mallards and gulls, of course, were plentiful, as well. Cardinals sang and mourning doves cooed in the background. Not a bad way to start the day. (Above photos were taken previously.)
Don’t forget to tune into Bird Calls Radio at 1 p.m. on Sunday at 1490 WGCH or “Listen Live” above. Jayne Neville, founder and owner of Mount Vernon Songbird Sanctuary, will be the guest. We will discuss topics such as wildlife rehabilitation and landscaping for wildlife. Should be an interesting and lively show. Thanks for supporting Bird Calls.
