I went to the Eastern Shore yesterday, and struck out completely. A very unusual occurrence. In truth, today wasn’t a lot better. I found a few good birds, but they wouldn’t pose. I had to settle for the usual suspects.
I spent a little time looking for bugs, and found a nice spider.
This Catbird is molting.
This is a juvenile Indigo Bunting, about as plain as a bird gets.
There’s almost always a common Yellowthroat to be found at Governor Bridge.
This Eastern Phoebe may be migrating.
Blue Grosbeaks will be migrating soon.
This (Wolf Spider, I think) is carrying her egg sac.
