I tried to stop for the unusual Harris' Sparrow in Brooksville today. There were many other birders there, but none saw it. I did find many kestrel, killdeer, and a couple of goldfinches.
On the way there I did see some black-bellied whistling ducks (first of the year), blue-winged teal, and hooded mergansers at the Walmart parking lot pond.
Finally, it was back to Bystre Lake for the second time today. Although there still weren't many species, a pair of peregrine falcons showed up and did a mating dance similar to the bald eagle where they grab talons. It was pretty interesting as I had never seen it before.
