Yellow Breasted Chats returned to Greenbury Point a few days ago, as they have each year for the past ten. I have yet to see a nest or chicks. but their bizarre song reverberates throughout the area, and even out to the actual point.
I’m maintaining a Trumpeter watch almost daily, and have high hopes.
A few migrating birds have begun showing up. I could probably get more species by travelling further, but gas is well over $4.00 now, and that’s too much. In truth, there are still areas of Greenbury and Quiet Waters I haven’t explored, and I don’t miss driving longer distances.
This Bald Eagle flew quite close to me.
Mockingbirds tend to be in the exact same place each time I visit.
There are many Blue Jays about at the moment.
I got a gimbal head for my tripod which may help with smoother videos.
This Chipping Sparrow was at Greenbury Point.
I’ve seen 4 Green Herons so far this year.
Any MD marsh is now filled with singing Red Winged Blackbirds.
This Trumpeter Swan is just stretching.
I usually see several Ospreys every day.
This Crow was relaxing at Jonas Green Park.
A few Goldfinches are hanging out at Jonas Green Park.
Spotted Sandpipers are one of the most common sandpipers.
I can’t pass up a good Cardinal.
This Great Blue Heron is probably feeding chicks, but I haven’t seen them yet.
Swamp Sparrows are creatures of the marsh.
Look closely to see two owlets.
Those with good hearing will find many Common Yellowthroat Warblers in any MD marsh.
This Brown Thrasher was foraging at Greenbury Point.
First Blue Grosbeak of the season.
This Yellow Breasted Chat was more cooperative than most. They sing loudly, but not often from an exposed perch.
