After dithering a while, I decided to try Wooton this morning. It’s not always easy to choose, and sometimes I wonder if I’d have done better had I gone elsewhere.
In any case, I made a good decision this morning. I found a warbler, at last, as well as a Green Heron, which is first of the season. A couple of cooperative ducks and a muskrat were icing on the wildlife cake.
A partly obscured Muskrat is better than no Muskrat.
Wooton is a great place to find Swamp Sparrows.
Blue Gray Gnatcatchers will be mating and building nests for a while.
This Great Blue Heron flew in and surveyed the scene.
These American Coot s were in the same pond as a few days ago.
This Chickadee was feeding very busily.
I found a Wood Duck with her chicks in one of the marsh ponds.
These Blue Winged Teal were in a different pond than a few days ago.
This Green Heron was fairly close, but the lighting was poor.
