I made the usual rounds this week, including a trip to Bombay Hook. It’s still slow, but a few of the regulars posed well enough, and I spent some time with the Tree Swallows at CBEC to try for flight shots.
Bombay Hook was good enough, even though there were no really exciting finds. I managed to turn 75 this week, which is an accomplishment all in itself.
I’ve heard Great Crested Flycatchers at CBEC frequently, but they are hard to find.
Ospreys do well at CBEC.
This Brown Thrasher was foraging at CBEC.
A colorful Carolina Wren.
These Barn Swallows were doing nest repair at Schoolhouse Pond.
There are many Canada Goose goslings in the marsh.
A single Great Egret was feeding at Schoolhouse Pond.
A few Mallards are nesting at CBEC.
Tree Swallow. I’ve learned a little about catching these tiny acrobats in flight.
