Cook’s Landing 6/5/2011

I birded Cook’s Landing in North Little Rock Sunday morning starting at 7 to beat the heat. I saw or heard 34 species of birds, not a great number for this place.   The best birds were probably 5 Least Terns, 3 Yellow-billed Cuckoos, 2 Painted Buntings, and 3 Baltimore Orioles harassing a crow. Below are some pictures from the morning.
