Common Colors

Got out for an even more gorgeous lunch this afternoon. 30 some degrees has never felt so nice.

I decided to have a look-see at Greenlee Preserve, where I had a feeling some brush areas might make up for the lack of open water on the area lakes.

I was treated to lots of activity from some very common species, House Finches, Dark-eyed Juncos, and European Starlings were all busy in great numbers. The Spotted Towhee started in a fairly clear patch under the brush, but gradually moved deeper and deeper until the movement was visible but the bird was not.
Chickadees were present as well, but were far too preoccupied to remain still for any pictures.
Next time perhaps.
