Shelby Farms
Memphis, TN
I had a couple of hours to kill yesterday and did a quick tour around the  
snow lined fields. At the lakes were; Ring-billed Gulls, lots of Canada 
Geese  and 22 Cackling plus 9 species of ducks. In the edge of the woods, I 
found a  mixed flock of over 60 Juncos and Chipping Sparrows. The dark morph 
Harlan's  still hides in the tree line around the garden plots and Kestrels and 
two  Shrikes were found sitting on their favorite hunting perches. I found 
a large  mixed flock of Laplands, Pipits and Eastern Meadowlarks in one 
field that I  settle in with to scan for something unusual. A Cooper's Hawk had 
other plans. A  couple of photos of the Cooper's hunt including one of it 
crashing the party  start at:
Good Birding  !!!
