Springbrook Nature Center

This morning was my first trip this year to Springbrook Nature Center in Fridley, MN. It is one of my favorite birding spots since it is close to home, has good walking paths, and a variety of birds. 

I arrived shortly after sunrise. The temp. was 28 degrees and I was glad I had my gloves and a hooded jacket. The following are some of my photos from this morning -- nothing spectacular, but it was fun to see the usual suspects in their habitats.
