Birding Hernando (afternoon) - January 6, 2017

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.
