Sharp Shinned Hawk and Ruby Throated Hummingbird

I went back to the Nature Center and Possum Point this morning in hopes of repeating yesterday’s performance. It wasn’t as good, but not a bad day all in all. Temps in the high 70s, low tumidity and slightly cloudy. It became much hotter later, so I didn’t go out this afternoon.

I usually go out on the point in the morning, and it’s not unusual to startle a fishing bird, so I was ready for this Great Blue Heron as he flew across the sunlit bay.


The Ospreys begin to fish as soon as the Sun rises.

This appears to be a female Yellow Warbler.


This juvenile Bluebird isn’t likely to inspire any poets or song writers until he finishes molting.

Nashville Warbler

I think this is a Nashville Warbler, but I’m checking on it. Wrong again. It’s an American Redstart.

This was shot at 1/400, but it seems to have stopped this Ruby Throated Hummingbird. It’s my best photo of this bird yet.

Blue Grosbeak

This female Blue Grosbeak will be heading to Central America or the Bahamas soon.

I couldn’t pass up two Mockingbirds in one shot.

American Lady

My Audubon Butterfly App says this is an American Lady
