Another cool, clear morning with promises of highs in the 80s. A birder couldn’t ask for more.
I headed out across the bay bridge about 6:30 and arrived at Terrapin Nature Park around 7:00 AM. Not a great day, but I did get a few shots, including some warblers.
The Common Yellowthroat is a very striking warbler. This is a male, and I haven’t seen one since Spring.
I haven’t seen many Brown Thrashers, so it’s surprising to see one two days in a row.
I was a little surprised when I looked closely at this Mockingbird, because it’s a juvenile and I haven’t seen one before.
This Catbird was deep n the brush, and it would have been more appropriate to use the flash.
Two Snowy Egrets were fishing in the marsh pond.
Sometimes the lighting conspires against you, but this Yellow Warbler is pretty enough without more help.
This Common Yellowthroat is a juvenile.
This is a Magnolia Warbler, and I really like the pose.
This female Red Bellied Woodpecker has a serious beak.
