The Northern Reaches Brings Us Closer
Common Snapping Turtle
Great Blue Heron
0730-0950 hrs./65-75 degrees F/partly cloudy/light and variable winds
An interesting week overall, but unable to photograph the Nashville Warbler and Prothonotary
Warblers. They were just moving too fast in cottonwood trees. Perhaps I'll get lucky soon.
The highlight of the week was this beautiful common snapping turtle, who led me to a forest with
a pond in the center of it. This would be a good hot spot for warblers in the spring.
The time for the Scissor-tailed Flycatchers is numbered, as they will be heading for all points south
in a short while.
The woodpeckers and their clan have been out in the open more and they are drumming. Soon they
will be taking mates. The Yellow-bellied Sapsucker will be around soon, too, so I hope to photograph this woodpecker, too.
