I haven’t been to Schoolhouse Pond in a while, so I took a chance this morning. I missed a Black Crowned Night Heron, who took off as I arrived, and some of the large birds were so close I had to reduce the zoom and shoot in DX mode to keep them in the frame.
I didn’t get anything great, but I may try again tomorrow.
Turtles were sunning everywhere.
This Eastern Phoebe may be nesting under the dock.
Tree Swallows seem to be nesting nearby.
There are several House Sparrows in the area.
This Grackle was foraging right behind me.
At least two Ospreys were fishing in the pond.
The Great Blue Herons were very active.
Barn Swallows are nesting also.
