Once again, work is interfering with my birding, but I managed to get to Truxtun Park briefly, where I found a few nice, but distant birds.
This is only the second Pied Billed Grebe I’ve seen, and I had to get some help with the ID.
“A small diving bird with a chicken-lke bill, the Pied-billed Grebe is common on lakes and ponds across North America. It is rarely seen flying and prefers to sink out of sight when danger threatens.”
This White Breasted Nuthatch was quite distant, so I’m happy with the image.
It’s been a couple of months since I’ve seen a Bluebird at Truxtun.
Mallards are quite common here, but still very attractive.
This Belted Kingfisher Belted Kingfisher was acting in typical fashion. They’ll perch on a branch overlooking the water, launch suicidally straight down after a fish, then return to the same branch.
Taken just as he hit the water.
Returning to the branch.
