Birding while not busy…

We are in the thick of the intensive summer sessions at school, but we still find time now and then to go see what’s flying about. Here are a few recent pics.

First, a “twofer”:

A couple of vireos:

The very colorful Chestnut Sided Warbler:

Everybody’s favorite, the Carolina Wren (in full throat):

And, keeping the mosquito population down, a couple of bug-eating birds:

Eastern Phoebe

It’s finally warbler time

Around here, it’s finally getting to be warbler time.  We saw our first Pine Warblers around these parts a few days ago and our first Palm Warblers today. I know other birders in the area have seen warblers before us, but the first ones you see for yourself are always fun.  Some pics…

These were taken at Tyler Arboretum.

This was one of the 4 we saw this afternoon at Okehocking Preserve.

We, of course, see lots of other birds. Here are a few favorites:

Song Sparrow

'Mock & Moon

Red-Winged Blackbird

Turkey Vulture

(I can’t help it. I’m addicted to TV…Turkey Vultures, that is.)
