Eagle Creek Birding

I haven't birded in Eagle Creek Park much since the whole lake is now frozen.  There are still a few interesting birds around including Swamp Sparrow, Winter Wren, and Red-headed Woodpeckers.  Today, the highlight was a very cooperative Red-shouldered Hawk.  Unfortunately, I didn't have any luck with photographing this bird once it took flight (after about 10 minutes of watching it).

I love the drop of water hanging off of the Red-Shouldered Hawk's beak!
