A slow Day At Terrapin Nature Area

No birding yesterday due to the rain. This morning was cool and cloudy, and the weatherman said it would be dry, so I headed back to Terrapin in hopes of finding more migrants. Alas, it was not to be. I did take a few pictures, which I haven’t looked at yet, but I’m not expecting much.


This young deer was foraging near the pond.

Bald Eagle

I believe this is an immature Bald Eagle. I almost skipped him, as he was flapping a lot, and I thought he was a Crow, then he started soaring.

Para Glider

Birding was so slow I watched this Para Glider for a while.


I have yet to see a day so slow that a Mockingbird won’t pose.


I saw feeding Catbirds virtually everywhere in the park.

Red Eyed Vireo

I’ve seen a lot of Red Eyed Vireos lately.


I saw dozens of migrating Monarch Butterflies.

Red Bellied Woodpecker

I took a quick trip to Truxtun Park this afternoon, where there were many active woodpeckers, including this Red Bellied Woodpecker.
