This was the coolest morning since early Spring. It was in the high 50s with a slight breeze and only slightly cloudy skies after last night’s short-lived but ferocious storm. I met Barry C. at PossumPoint as planned, and we had a decent day.
The sky was a remarkable blue, with highlights in the clouds.
I’m not much of a poet, but there’s a remarkable serenity in watching a Ring Billed Gull glide through an early morning sky.
Large flocks of Double Crested Cormorants are a regular sight at Possum Point.
This Belted Kingfisher was very active, flying back and forth and diving for fish several times.
This Yellow Warbler was not very cooperative.
This Great Blue Heron is headed for a perch in the tree in front of him.
This Green Heron was very intent on his fishing.
I was surprised to see this Palm Warbler foraging in the grass.
I wish more birds were as cooperative as this House Finch.
I’ve had good luck with Red Eyed Vireos lately.
This Blue Gray Gnatcatcher was very active, and I was lucky to get this shot.
This Common Yellwothroat is a female.
I’ve only seen a few stags, and this is the first I’ve been able to photograph. He looks a bit skinny to me.
Eastern Wood Peewees have been very common this week.
I don’t know what this is at the moment. Edit:Goldfinch.
