There has been some good winter birds of note recently at Ijams. And you really do not have to walk that far to find them.
In addition to the juvenile red-headed woodpecker that's been hanging around the parking lot, last weekend in front of the Visitor Center we had a purple finch and a pine siskin. (There's got to be more. They never travel alone.)
Chuck Cooper managed to photograph the magnificent raspberry-colored finch with blooming witch hazel in the background.
While Jason Dykes located the young red-headed.
Thanks, Chuck and Jason!
