I had a job in Lothian this morning, on the farm of a friend, and he graciously allowed me to cruise the property for birds. It’s a haven for all kinds of wildlife, and he’s one a marvelous job of landscaping and general maintenance. The first thing I noticed was an abundance of Flycatchers and Butterflies.
These birds are hard to identify, but I’m calling it an Acadian Flycatcher.
My Android Audubon Butterfly app says this is a Zebra Swallowtail.
Hardly a great image, but a nice find for me. I believe this is a Northern Parula, and I’ve only seen a couple in the past.
I’m fairly confident this is an Aphrodite Fritillary.
When I set up for this shot, there were two Yellow Bellied Flycatchers sitting on the branch, so the other two were a nice surprise.
This Goldfinch will be adopting a winter plumage before long.
