adding to the count

In the mid-morning I walked in Shawnee Park. I saw my first Field Sparrow and my first Harris's Sparrow of the year. After church, I drove to Chicken Express, where I ate catfish and green beans with a dinner roll. 

After lunch I walked in Suncreek Park in Allen. I saw my first Golden-Crowned Kinglet of the year. My best pictures today were of an Eastern Phoebe in Suncreek Park and of a Northern Flicker in Shawnee Park.

In the mid-afternoon, I worked on making my car more tidy. I made some progress, but  did not finish. Then I took Beatrice for a walk. For the second day in a row, she opted to take the "shorter route" in which we deviate from the park to the elementary school beside the park rather than walking around the park pond. During that walk, I saw my first Common Grackles of the year.

We ate home-made pizza with goat cheese and parmesan cheese, which was very good. I plan to read my book tonight, get a good night's sleep and then have a productive week this coming week.
