Birding at Possum and Greenbury Points

We had significant rain last night, and there was a slight drizzle when I awoke at 5:00 AM, but the weatherman promised it would be dry for the nerxt 6 hours, so I went off to Possum Point. It was very cloudy, but the temperature rose quickly, and I was in shirt sleeves by 8:30.
It wasn’t a great day, but I got a few decent shots.

I only got a quick look at this bird, so I didn’t expect it to be a Red Eyed Vireo.
