Mud-luscious Celery Farm Today

It may not be "In Just Spring" yet, but the Celery Farm sure was mud-luscious today, and even saw the first Skunk DSCN5043Cabbages poking up.

Highlights included one of the resident Red-shoulders and a Peregrine strafing the gulls.

Redpolls and an Iceland Gull were also reported -- if anyone has a photo share...

Wear mud boots if you go to the farm.

Full list of birds seen on my walk follows -- I'm sure I missed a lot more as I dodged the muddiest spots.
