Common Yellowthroat at Greenbury Point.

I started early(6:30 ish) at Possum Point, but the sunrise was kinda’ bland. No birds to speak of.

The Nature Center is about a quarter mile away, and I was there and birding just a few minutes after sunrise.

It was still a bit dark, as thereĀ  were clouds and the sun was quite low. I saw a few birds, but it was about half an hour before I saw any action.

There were quite a few birds around, and one Willow tree had me occupied for half an hour as it had so many visitors. Too many birds is a good problem, but you can’t help but wonder about the ones you missed. I did three circuits of the area, and the numbers dropped off quickly.

A good day. Good weather, good birds and a few good images.
