The grapevine said there are Warblers at Terrapin Nature Park, so I crossed the bridge early in hopes of finding a few. I met some birders who saw a Chestnut Sided, but the best I could do was a Yellow. I did manage to get some other good shots, though.
This Green Heron was overlooking the marsh, and allowed me to get quite close. He flew off with a series of loud squawks. I saw him several more times at the marsh.
The Ospreys were very active, and several were fishing the marsh pond.
I was lucky to spot this Ruby Throated Hummingbird .
This Chickadee was foraging in the marsh grass.
I believe this is a first year Forster’s Tern. There were many fishing in the marsh pond.
The colors on this Carolina Wren seemed unusually bright.
Some of the rabbits at Terrapin Park seem unusually tame.
This appears to be a female Blue Grosbeak.
It’s amazing to watch these birds dive headlong into the water. This one missed his fish.
There were hundreds of butterflies around, including many of these Spicebush Swallowtails.
The Orchard Oriole is often a willing subject.
I haven’t seen many Yellow Billed Cuckoos out in the open like this.
