Here are a few images from this last week. I think there are two nesting pairs of Green Herons around the pond. There may be more.
On Thursday I saw the season’s first Great Crested Flycatcher. It took me a while to realize it was the “Real McCoy” because you can hear a Brown Thrasher near the picnic shelter that has a spot-on imitation of a Great Crested Flycatcher’s “que-EEEEP” call. Photographing these flycatchers is challenging, because they spend most of the their time in the tree tops.
The Chipping Sparrows are trying their best to imitate Pine Warblers. And one or two wild Azaleas are blooming in the undergrowth. There’s also a trumpet vine of sorts blooming near the path, but it’s also close to one of the Green Heron nests, so I don’t want to disturb them.
One thought on “Mid-April Mornings”
