This afternoon after work I showed a friend the Stone House area in the Bear Creek Greenbelt.  Unlike the past few days, there were relatively few birds on the pond, just a handful of Hooded Mergansers, a dozen or so Canada Geese and Cackling Geese, maybe a couple of dozen Northern Shovelers, and just one pair of Mallards.

We walked along the north trail near Yale and saw a few Houses Finches, a couple of Black-capped Chickadees, a Song Sparrow, and an American Tree Sparrow.

Nearby this accipiter was keeping an eye on things:
