Eastern Towhee at Governor Bridge Natural Area.

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.

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.
