Ovenbird at Greenbury Point.

I’ve been getting to Greenbury Point most days, with the occasional visit to the Trumpeter Swans, CBEC, Jonas Green Park and another day at Bombay Hook. The Trumpeter Swan has “Angel Wing”, a debilitating illness that will likely shorten his life if he’s not rescued.  I expect to know more soon.

Greenbury Point has been fruitful most days, bringing many migrating birds like Orioles, Vireo and Warblers.  We had as many as 20 species in one day.

CBEC is showing significant mud, meaning many more shorebirds are visiting, and offering the possibility of interesting photo opps.  Bombay Hook was Bombay Hook  near its best. We haven’t found the cool sandpipers yet, but we got another Virginia Rail.

I’m featuring the Ovenbird because I don’t see many, and it’s a decent image.

    • The wing can be repaired, but Louis needs to stay in a zoo or a safe surrounding. I should know more later this week.
