Life interfered with birding yesterday, but now I have brakes that work, so, not a bad trade off.
It was anther gray and threatening morning, but I got out early and went to Terrapin Nature Center. The light was awful, and shows the limits of my camera, but I got a few good shots.
I’m fairly certain this is a Blue Winged Warbler. I haven’t seen many.
This shot of a Great Crested Flycatcher gives you an idea of how dark it was.
I’ve only seen Veerys twice, and they were both in this tree.
It’s startling to see the brilliant colors of a Baltimore Oriole through the viewfinder.
There was a large flock of juvenile Cedar Waxwings, and they stayed in one place quite a while.
I’ve only seen two other Brown Thrashers this year.
The long beak makes me think this is a Hairy Woodpecker.
I haven’t seen a Red Bellied Woodpecker in a while.
There were many Catbirds actively feeding.
I was lucky to capture this Blue Gray Gnatcatcher at all.
I couldn’t coax this Red Eyed Vireo any fiurther into view.
This Snowy Egret was fishing in the marsh pond.
This Osprey appeared to be drying his wings.
The American Robin is another bird I often pass up because they are so common. This one posed in a nice place.
Most Northern Flickers I see are perched on a branch.
