Baltimore Oriole at Buddy Attick Lake Park.

The dearth of migrants has continued for several days, now, along with so-so weather. Today was a big improvement, but warblers are still among the missing, so far.

I’ve managed a few outings, recently, but haven’t had enough good material for a post. I’m including several days of photos today.

The Chat, the Oriole and the Gadwall were all good finds and may bode well for the future.
