Yesterday was a beautiful day in Buffalo!
I spent the afternoon with a friend at Tifft Nature Preserve in South Buffalo.
Tifft is a perfect place for a winter walk. It is easy to get to from the City, the trails are sheltered from the wind, and there are birds in every season. Today we saw woodpeckers, a Great Blue Heron, Cardinals, Robins, and this adorable chickadee…
who landed right on my friend’s outstretched hand.
There were several other walkers and birders there…
…and across the street at the Harbor, we met a man on the look-out for a Snowy Owl. He said that there was one on the breakwalls, but our binoculars were not strong enough for a good sighting.
We did see these adorable Coots!
