A few more birds

Some more birds from this week, including some from the Great Backyard Bird Count. I also saw crows, vultures, lots of sparrows, titmice, a nuthatch, mallards, lots of white ducks, and Canada geese. First, a mockingbird

Lots of nice pictures. It's such a hopeful thing to see a cardinal in the winter.
