Absolutely perfect birding weather. Temps in the low 70s, slightly cloudy and only a slight wind. The birds must have known it also, as there was a lot of activity this morning. I missed several good birds, but there was no shortage of good shots.
Oddly, the bugs were not at all active, maybe because of the relatively cool weather.
Governor Bridge, the path to to the boat launch.
The big field at Governor Bridge.
The Downy Woodpecker is another bird that often lets you get very close.
This Chickadee ignored me, as they often do.
I liked the color combination of the Red Winged Blackbird on the mimosa tree.
Several Blue Gray Gnatcatchers were feeding rapidly.
I saw more Eastern Phoebes today than I did all week.
This female Cardinal was foraging in the big field.
The female House Finch won the fight.
This Common Yellowthroat popped up right in front of me.
A flock of Goldfinches was flitting around the big field.
This juvenile Baltimore Oriole was in the big field.
Ruby Throated Hummingbird s were very active.
Red Eyed Vireos were very active also. They may have been juveniles.
This Red Eyed Vireo was not happy to be displaced from his perch.
