Yesterday, Mark McKellar of the Backyard Bird Center in Kansas City, North, led one of his regular Thursday morning outings to Martha Lafite Thompson Nature Sanctuary.   We had a nice morning of birding, and members of the group saw and/or heard the following:
   Red-shouldered Hawk                                    White-breasted Nuthatches
   Belted Kingfisher                                           Carolina Wrens
   Red-bellied Woodpeckers                               Eastern Bluebirds
   Northern Flickers                                           American Robins
   Yellow-bellied Sapsucker                                Cedar Waxwing
   Downy Woodpeckers                                     Chipping Sparrows
   Blue Jays                                                      White-throated Sparrow
   American Crows                                            Northern Cardinal
   Black-capped Chickadees                              American Goldfinch

We saw two flocks of Eastern Bluebirds foraging in different locations at the sanctuary.  For me, those were the largest numbers of E. Bluebirds I've seen at once -- a real treat. 

Good birding!
