Indigo Buntings and Orioles

I was off early to Possum Point despite the threatening weather. As it turned out, the day was sunny and relatively mild. As usual, I went to the point first, circled around to the boat ramp, then decamped to the Nature Center.




I was lucky to capture these Ospreys flying in tandem.

Great Blue Heron

This Great Blue Heron was overseeing the boat ramp.

Eastern Kingbird

I almost always see these Eastern Kingbirds at the top of a plant, where they look for insects to catch.

Great Crested Flycatcher

This Great Crested Flycatcher was resting between meals.

Downy Woodpecker

Downy Woodpecker

Earlier this year I saw Downy Woodpeckers almost every time I went out, but they’ve been scarce lately.

House Finch

This appears to be a young House Finch.


There are many Bluebird boxes at the Nature Center, and they’ve helped produce a bumper crop.

Indigo Bunting (Female)

I found this Blue Grosbeak female in almost the same spot as a month ago.

Orchard Oriole (Female)

I see female Orchard Orioles frequently, but the males are much rarer.

Chipping Sparrow

The Chipping Sparrow is a cheery bird.
