November Birdwatch with John Tschopp (and save the date of December 15 for the Christmas Bird Count)

From our lead birding correspondent, John Tschopp:

The big water in the rivers and field is a benefit to waterfowl. Ducks feed in the pools by the hundreds. When they take to the air, they are shy, the sky is full of birds. With the camera it is not easy to catch this impression. I tried it and got a few Mallards.

The Ruffed Grouse was feeding in our garden.

When I was out there chasing ducks today, I came across this rather soggy Northern Shrike.
