Yesterday I tried Governor Bridge again, without much luck. I know the migrants are here, but they seem to be avoiding me.
I had an early appointment this morning, so I went to Truxtun Park, just a mile from home, and found a couple of good birds.
I’m sure things will pick up soon.
Views from the bridge at Truxtun Park.
I got a good, close up look at this Hermit Thrush in the woods.
This female Red Winged Blackbird seemed to be foraging in the water.
This Mallard flew right over the bridge.
Swamp Sparrows are numerous at Truxtun Park, but they usually stay well hidden in the reeds.
Eastern Towhees towhees are fairly common, but it’s not always easy to get a decent image.
