The weatherman promised sunny skies a couple of days ago, but I awoke to gray and gloomy skies. I really wanted to get to Terrapin, so I vacillated until 8:00 or so and then went, despite the lousy skies.
I didn’t break any records, but I found a few decent birds and will go back soon.
I haven’t seen a Cedar Waxwing in a while, and this one appeared as I was leaving.
These Flycatchers are tough to ID.
This Osprey was fishing in the marsh pond.
Several Snowy Egrets were fishing in the marsh pond also.
This Scarlet Tanager was a nice find.
I’m not seeing as many Downy Woodpeckers as last year.
This Mockingbird landed right in front of me.
I’m still looking for a good male American Redstart. The tail fanning is typical behavior of these birds as they forage.
