I’ve been spending more time at Greenbury Point this year than previously. I’ve done reasonably well, and I think I’ve underestimated the potential of this area. Even at its busiest, this government nature preserve is relatively serene and peaceful. There’s still far too many dog walkers with dogs off leash, but that may be improving.
I’m doing well with warblers and other migrants, and several people seem to have stopped by based on my MD Birding posts. There will be migrant traffic well into October, so I may see some more interesting birds.
Common Yellowthroats are quite common at Greenbury Point.
I’ve seen more Black and White Warblers than usual this year.
I’ve captured this Carolina Wren exuberant singing pose many times.
Red Eyed Vireos are migrating through in numbers.
Eastern Phoebes have been present daily.
This Eastern Phoebe has found a nutritious snack.
This is a Swainson’s Thrush, which I’ve seen only once before.

I don’t often get such a good look at Black Throated Blue Warblers.

This Cardinal has found a nice stash.
