Yates Mill Pond

Some would say it was too cold to bird this morning. I would almost agree.
Highlights for me were 1) the park itself being my first visit there, 2) sharp-shinned hawk on a perch, 3) E. winter wren among the old fallen trees on the high trail, and 4) a couple of fox sparrows along the forest edging the fields.
Yates Mill Pond is a great place to visit.
