Dragonflies in the Heat

Work. weather and chores have been intruding on my birding for the last couple of days, so there’s not much to show here.
Yesterday I had to work on a couple pf computer problems, so my Sandy Point Trip was very short, and today I got new tires for the truck and got a few shots of the birds around Sam’s Club, but a subsequent trip to the Nature Center was very brief due to the excessive heat and humidity.

Chesapeake Bay Bridge

This view of the Bay Bridge was taken looking across the marina at Sandy Point.


When it’s too hot for the birds, you can usually find a dragonfly.

Blue Jay

The local Sam’s club did a decent job of keeping a green border, and it looked promising, but it’s largely populated by Blue Jays, Mockingbirds, Starlings, stray cats and Sparrows.


Mockingbirds seemed to be everywhere, and they were quite aggressive with one another.

Red Winged Blackbird

This Red Winged Blackbird was one of the few birds braving the heat.
