More from Gabriel Dumont Park

Things were quite slow the other day when I went to the park, and it sure was hot. Maybe this was a factor. Still , I managed to get a few photos ...

House Wren - This adult was feeding bugs to its young :



Yellow Warbler - I saw a Tennessee Warbler at the park feeding close to this guy, but it didn't stick around for a photo op :




Eastern Kingbird - This youngster was sat out in the parking lot, and I had to get it to safety by placing it in some bushes away from the cars. Its parents soon found it, and all was well :



Cedar Waxwing - There are still many of these around. This was was perched high overlooking the river :



Clay-colored Sparrow - yet another one of these abundant birds. I liked the background on this one though , so couldn't resist taking the shot :
