Brickhouse Road

Chip and I birded the beaverdam impoundment loop at Brickhouse Rdthis
afternoon. Quite the birdy place! Sparrows everywhere, most of which we could
not ID because they hide so well 🙂  But we did get a good view of a fox
sparrow, which was a treat for us, and some others. The brown creeper crept
upside down on a limb over the water, and we were lucky to see it. The winter
wrens played hide-and-seek among the rocks that lined the road sides. We may
have seen two more but only got good looks at the first two.
