Heather Farm Park in Walnut Creek


It seemed fairly quiet for me today, as the Canada Geese were not making all of their noise chasing each other.  In fact, there did not seem to be many of them around the ponds.  There were also only a few Mallards, but the wood Ducks were on the island when looking from the wooden railing.

The Downy Woodpecker pair may have finished construction, as he came to take a look and she was inside.  He moved away and she went back in.

There were still plenty of White- and Golden-crowned Sparrows today, but no Lincoln's or Fox.

Barn, Rough-winged and a Cliff Swallow were seen flying over the big pond.
