One thing I’m learning is that I didn’t have enough faith in my local spots. I’m finding decent birds in good enough numbers without getting more than 5 miles from home. I don’t have a good marsh bird spot around here, but it’s not that far to CBEC or Terrapin.
I suspect the CA fires are still having an effect on our skies, as the morning light is often gray and dreary. I did catch a decent sunrise or two, though.
I’ve spotted several warblers, a couple of Tanagers and vireos and the usual suspects.
We had decent morning colors on a couple of days.
The Red Bellied Woodpecker has a distinctive call, and it’s one of the first I learned.
Northern Flickers are on the move.
This Carolina Wren posed very nicely.
Magnolia Warblers are even more striking i Spring.
I’m posting this lousy image because the Scarlet Tanager is a cool bird.
I used to see more Red Eyed Vireos than I do nowadays.
This Common Yellowthroat Warbler is headed for the tropics.
Rose Breasted Grosbeaks are attractive even in poor light.
Many Mockingbirds reside at Greenbury Point.
Cardinals are also well represented.
There are always at least a few Goldfinches in the area.
Many Flycatchers passed through in the last week.
It’s not unusual to see a Black and White Warbler upside down.
