The weather right now is pretty miserable , with gale force winds and overcast skies. The yard has been alive with migrants so expect to see more photos soon!
In the meantime, here are some more Spring birds I have seen and photographed over the past week or so...
Gray-cheeked Thrush - Another one from a recent walk around the neighborhood :
Yellow-rumped Warbler - These are still hanging around :
Orange-crowned Warbler - Nice to actually SEE the Orange Crown on this bird, as its not always visible :
Ovenbird - a different view of the Ovenbird I recently found :
Palm Warbler - I found this new arrival close to home :
Chipping Sparrow - These are everyday visitors at this time of year :
Lincoln's Sparrow - This individual has been in the yard for many days now :
And finally, here are some new photos from along the river...
Snowshoe Hare :
Lesser Canada Goose :
Lacking the larger body, long neck of a Canada Goose , and the shorter bill of a Cackling Goose , this small individual was along the river recently, dwarfed by his bigger cousins :
Gapper's Red-backed Vole :
