Where to go?-that is the question. After vacillating, I decided to go back to Terrapin, which wasn’t awful, but not as good as yesterday. I did get to see a very close Bald Eagle, my first in a while. I had to work this morning, so I cut short the Terrapin trip to take a quick run by CBEC, where I was greeted by a Pine Warbler, my first since Spring. Some egrets and another warbler made it worthwhile.
This shows the contrast in size between the Great Egret and the Snowy Egret.
There were about 20 Great and Snowy Egrets feeding in the lake.
I saw Prairie Warblers at Terrapin and CBEC.
This Orchard Oriole was feeding right alongside the warblers.
I was surprised to see this Pine Warbler perched on a power line.
One tree at Terrapin seemed to be full of American Redstarts.
I’d like more variety in the warblers, but I’ll settle for a Chestnut Sided Warbler.
I haven’t gotten this close to a deer in a while.
