If Only I Could Fly, Too
Great Blue Heron
Blue-winged Teal Juveniles
52-67 degrees F/0740-1030 hrs./sunny/light and variable winds
Still reasonably good migratory movement with a lot of ducks arriving now. Yesterday, the Greater Roadrunner was observed being secretive, 17 Meadowlark were in a field, the Bald Eagle has been back and forth, and today, the Belted Kingfisher allowed a photo op. The Pileated Woodpecker was heard, as well as seen, and a poor photo was obtained. The wood chips were flying in all directions thanks to him, and most of the woodpecker clan was out, except the Yellow-bellied Sapsucker.
A lot of activity was in The Northern Reaches, and I am still holding out for both the Ruby- and Golden-crowned Kinglets. If I can get a better photo of that pileated, I'll take that, too. Here's to you, kid.
