When I was a child, I was occasionally shown Sparrow Hawks, Marsh Hawks and Fish Hawks by my grandfather.
Bird names change over time and these species now have different names. As it happens, I saw all three today at Col. Sam Smith Park.
The Sparrow Hawk is now called the American Kestrel.
The Marsh Hawk is now called the Northern Harrier.
The Fish Hawk is now called the Osprey.
I will identify it at the end of the post.
Sometimes called the “nuthatch” warbler due to its habit of frequently being upside down, this is a Black and White Warbler.
“How happy I am to be able to walk among the shrubs, the trees, the woods, the grass, and the rocks — no one can love the countryside more than I do — for the woods, the trees, and the rocks give a man the inspiration he needs”.
— Ludwig van Beethoven
