Welcome to Today at the AHATS Wildlife Observation Area (formerly TCAAP Wildlife Viewing Area.) I've been visiting this small park regularly since 2008. This is a log of all the wildlife and nature I experience nearly every day.
Two blackhawk helicopters flew over the AHATS Wildlife Observation Area this morning. I saw a couple swans, some geese, sparrows and robins. A half a dozen crows were making a commotion in the dead trees but I couldn't get a bead on what was upsetting them. It was probably some sort of raptor.
I got up for sunrise on Sunday and saw some fog on my way to the AHATS Wildlife Observation Area. I decided to pull over and get some landscape shots before I got to the WVA. This black and white one is my favorite of that morning.
I saw a couple woodpeckers like this young one today at the AHATS Wildlife Observation Area. The most interesting thing I saw this morning was three large groups of 20+ blue jays. I also saw a dozen or so goldfinches, 4 crows, 2 trumpeter swans and about eight ring-billed gulls fishing in the lake.
