Bird a Week #13 -- Bird Watching

Last weekend we went birding out to Pedernales State Park, where they have a nice blind. It's a great place to sit and watch all the wildlife coming in for the free seed, peanut butter and water. Now they've added a new blind as well, so there are two different spots (nice photos here). It's interesting to see that the established spot is much more active than the new, even almost a year after installation. This round we saw lots of goldfinches, house finches, cardinals, titmice, mourning doves, a red-wing blackbird, several types of hummers, various sparrows, chickadees, and my favorite -- a ladderback woodpecker with a red crown who would come and sit right on the window ledge to "people watch."
