It was a beautiful morning, with temps in the 70s and low humidity. As it’s a holiday weekend, I decided to stay close to home to avoid the traffic, and went back to the Nature Center and Possum Point. It was an OK day, but I’m not seeing the variety of migrants others are writing about.
These Double Crested Cormorants were part of a large flock who have been resident for quite a while.
I’m used to seeing Ospreys in this tree, not Turkey Vultures.
This pair of Chipping Sparrows was active early in the day.
Yellow Warblers have been in the area all Summer.
I’ve seen Downy Woodpeckers in this small dead tree several times.r
This Common Grackle seemed to be surveying the area.
These House Finches were part of a flock mixed with juvenile Bluebirds.
This juvenile Bluebird is on the way to his adult coloration.
This Blue Gray Gnatcatcher was very active,
Eastern Kingbirds are always willing to pose.
I assume this Common Yellowthroat is a migrant.
