Baltimore Oriole at Governor Bridge Natural Area

Cool and calm with light winds. A good day for birding, but mighty cool for late April.
I was determined to get back to Governor Bridge for some of the birds I’ve missed, and I found one. I see more trips in the future.

Blue Gray Gnatcatcher

Blue Gray Gnatcatchers are very busy, everywhere in the park.

You can hear an Eastern Towhee singing long before you see him.

I’m having good luck with Swamp Sparrows this year.

Baltimore Oriole

Baltimore Orioles often forage in the treetops, making close-ups difficult.
