Another perfect weather day, so I went to Possum Point and got a few seabirds, then on to the Nature Center where there was a lot of activity, and one apparent Warbler I haven’t looked at yet. This afternoon I stopped at Truxtun Park and found a few birds.
This Fox was by the roadside and ignored me in my truck. I got a few shots, but the light was poor and I was too dumb to try a lower shutter speed or use the flash.
Several flocks of Double Crested Cormorants flew overhead.
I was lucky to capture this Great Blue Heron in flight.
I often see seabirds like this Double Crested Cormorant sitting on this piling.
This Downy Woodpecker was on the peninsula at Possum Point, and I seldom see small birds there.
There’s a large dead tree on Possum Point that is a favorite perch for Ospreys.
This Osprey has had a successful hunt.
This Chipping Sparrow let me get quite close and seemed indifferent to my presence.
I don’t see many Yellow Billed Cuckoos, and when I do they are often obscured like this one.
This Great Crested Flycatcher was eating cherries.
I went several weeks without seeing a Downy Woodpecker and now I’m inundated.
Blue Gray Gnatcatchers were plentiful and active.
I saw more Eastern Kingbirds than usual, and they seemed to be forming flocks.
I didn’t know this was a Blue Grosbeak until I uploaded it to my computer.
It takes a little luck to get a pair of birds like these Indigo Buntings.
These Goldfinches seemed to be foraging for gravel.
I thought I’d found a warbler, but I believe this is a Red Eyed Vireo.
This Great Blue Heron was fishing at Truxtun Park.
It’s been a while since I posted a Cardinal.
This is one ratty looking Carolina Wren .
This Titmouse was part of a very noisy mixed flock of Chickadees and Titmice.
Red Bellied Woodpeckers have been in short supply lately also.
