What a great trip! There was lots of snow, and I saw three new bird species: pine siskin, brown creeper, and red-breasted nuthatch. There were also many other species around, including white-breasted nuthatches, chickadees, titmice, crows, and downy, hairy, and red-bellied woodpeckers. One of the biggest surprises was a golden-crowned kinglet. I had assumed that they went south for the winter, but I saw him or her twice in the time I was up there.

Look at all the snow that was up there!

Here are some nice chickadee and titmouse pictures.

Here is a blurry picture of a pileated woodpecker.

My next post will be about a trip to Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary, here in Saint Louis, so keep checking back!


  1. I love the chickadee on the evergreen branch! Great contrast and framing.
