Strange trio

This morning at the Bracebridge Ponds there was a Robin, a Starling, and a Northern Shrike feeding in close proximity to each other along the roadway west of cell 4. At one point the Shrike was perched low in a shrub right next to the Robin, but the Robin just carried on feeding. After the three birds had moved on, we checked the area and could see small flies and spiders moving about, but no other obvious edibles except for a still intact moth pupa.

At Henry Marsh a Sandhill Crane was calling as it flew over, heading north. At least five Golden-crowned Kinglets were along the Chickadee Trail...hadnít seen or heard any there since Dec. 25.

(Only a small patch of open water in cell 3 at the Bracebridge Ponds. The beaver pond at Henry Marsh is still frozen, but the creeks are open again.)
