|Yellow Headed Blackbirds|
Just how many black birds are out there??!!!! Well on this day with Kathie, we'd discover every type of black bird and then some at Lakeside Park!!!! There were some incredible surprises in the mix as well....rarities. I love my birding buddy. She's not only a cool person, but I now miss her when I'm birding alone. Birding anytime is great but it's better when we work together as today would prove.

And of course there were those that stood out from the "black feathers" only club. But Kathie's careful eye discovered Cowbirds!!! She was in awe and when it's something big, she says things like, "Oh my gosh Chris. Oh my gosh! That's a...." And we both get excited over the discovery.
