My first shot of an Eastern Towhee this year. I think its such a regal looking bird!


First, the TRUMPETER SWAN continues this morning. Many birders showed up again today for their try at the bird and none were disappointed. Much kayak traffic seemed to quickly push the bird to the back side of the kill, but it wasn’t flushed, so I guess it might be getting used to the activity. Migration was much less prominent than I had expected. Many Blue-gray Gnatcatchers came in and more Ruby-crowned Kinglets as well. I had a Brown Thrasher at the Pine Boat Launch, my first at this spot. Pine Warblers and Louisiana Waterthrush were in most of their usual spots. Eastern Towhees are showing up in several areas. Waterfowl continues to decrease. 20 Ring-necked Ducks, 30 Wood Ducks, 15 Mallard and 2 Northern Shovelers were the only ducks seen. No mergansers for me this morning. Nice morning.
