A Good Day at Terrapin Nature Park

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.

Blue Winged Warbler

I’m fairly certain this is a Blue Winged Warbler. I haven’t seen many.

Great Crested Flycatcher

This shot of a Great Crested Flycatcher gives you an idea of how dark it was.

Veery

I’ve only seen Veerys twice, and they were both in this tree.

Baltimore Oriole

Baltimore Oriole

It’s startling to see the brilliant colors of a Baltimore Oriole through the viewfinder.

Cedar Waxwing

There was a large flock of juvenile Cedar Waxwings, and they stayed in one place quite a while.

Brown Thrasher

I’ve only seen two other Brown Thrashers this year.

Hairy  Woodpecker

The long beak makes me think this is a Hairy Woodpecker.

Red Bellied Woodpecker

I haven’t seen a Red Bellied Woodpecker in a while.

Catbird

There were many Catbirds actively feeding.

Blue Gray Gnatcatcher

I was lucky to capture this Blue Gray Gnatcatcher at all.

Red Eyed Vireo

I couldn’t coax this Red Eyed Vireo any fiurther into view.

Snowy Egret

This Snowy Egret was fishing in the marsh pond.

Osprey

This Osprey appeared to be drying his wings.

American Robin

The American Robin is another bird I often pass up because they are so common. This one posed in a nice place.

Northern Flicker

Most Northern Flickers I see are perched on a branch.
