More birds in Lamar area-Sunday

This morning several of us birded the Lamar Woods this morning. The Carolina Wren was refound by Barb while Pearl found a 1st winter Harris' Sparrow and a male Red-bellied Woodpecker (the bird yesterday was a female). Also found were at least 2 Downey Woodpeckers, 1 Hairy Woodpecker, and some Cedar Waxwings.

This afternoon I found 2 Golden Eagles, probably in Basic III plumage, about a mile apart just south of Eads (a small town north of Lamar). They are proof that even with a continuing snow cover in this area there are still birds to be seen and carrion to feed these raptors.

(I'm posting from my room at the Blue Spruce Motel in Lamar so not able to post any photos)
