I returned to Terrapin Nature Park this morning in hopes of repeating yesterday’s success, but it wasn’t to be. The weather was warmer and clearer, but the bird gods were not on my side.
Yet another young deer, so my guess at foaling season must be right. I’ve now seen these in three different places.
I saw several Great Crested Flycatchers feeding in the marsh.
Red Winged Blackbirds are still present in large numbers, and can be heard constantly singing in the marsh.
This young Red Winged Blackbird appears to be getting his red epaulets.
It’s always fun to watch Chickadees feeding.
Turkey Vultures often get a negative reaction, but they are an essential part of the ecology.
This Dragonfly is new to me.
I tried to get closer to this Blue Grosbeak, but he flew away as I approached.
I was amused to see all three of these Turkey Vultures drying their wings in unison.
The female Red Bellied Woodpecker isn’t as gaudy as her red headed mate.
Downy Woodpeckers seemed to be more common in the Spring.
