This is the fourth post in the Road Trip to the East series. See my other posts:
We continued seeing lot's of birds at the feeders. There are never a shortage of Mourning Doves too.

I took daily walks down to the river with my brother.

|I had gotten a picture of these birds. I thought they were both Common Goldeneye's, but when I looked closer on the computer, I could tell, on of them wasn't a goldeneye. I wasn't quite sure what it was, merganser maybe. I looked up what mergansers looked like, that was for sure what it was, a Common Merganser, which is a new bird for me. I was quite lucky to identify it first try. The bird on the right is a female goldeneye.|

Here's another female Common Goldeneye
We thought there had been a hawk living around here, we had found remains of a cardinal and cedar waxwing. I was lucky to get this picture of it flying.
|I am really impressed with this photo of it flying away.|
