Green Heron at Jonas Green Park.

It’s the slowest time of the year and it’s getting hot. I’m visiting the same places almost daily and not finding much interesting. There may just be fewer birds, or I may need a new game plan. I suspect I’ve lost a step or two, as I feel my longer walks more than usual.

Both Possum Point and Sandy Point have made it hard to get in for sunrise photos, and my few trips there this year haven’t found much. Likewise for CBEC and Terrapin.

The pond at Jonas Green has been my salvation for the last few weeks. Herons, Ducks and Blackbirds are plentiful and usually will pose at least briefly.
