Wood Ducks. It's hard to believe that they're a fairly common native bird.

I made this fruit feeder myself. No birds have come to it yet, however.This juvenile cooper's hawk was (I think) eating a road-killed rabbit as I left my neighborhood to go to Forest Park.
Various yard birds.
In this post you will find some snow pictures from around my house, and some pictures from a trip to Forest Park. That trip netted me a new species: the field sparrow. Also seen were mallards, wood ducks, a juvenile red tailed hawk, song sparrows, american tree sparrows, starlings, white-throated sparrows, dark-eyed juncos, a carolina wren, and an american kestrel.

There were lots of bird's nests visible around the park.
I may be going on an Audubon field trip to Riverlands this weekend, so keep checking back!
