A “yellow” bird. I think this is a
white eyed vireo even though you can’t really see the white from this angle. Thanks to Ken for IDing this as a bay breasted warbler. Matches my Stokes guide.
Possible palm warbler.
Eastern phoebes are everywhere.
Catbird in the shade. They are everywhere as well.
Red bellied woodpecker
Another white eyed vireo.
I caught him blinking.

Hawk telling me I can’t have his snack.
An early morning Saturday walk at Chesnut Park. I finally started seeing some winter birds coming through. It was the first “not steamy hot” morning. Perfect early fall morning. I would have stayed longer but my foot started hurting. I seem to have a bone spur or heel spur on my left foot. My heel started hurting the week before but felt better during the week. After two hours of walking around it was killing me. I have since added support insoles to my walking shoes and they seem to be doing some good but every once in a while it still hurts a little. If this keeps up much longer I’m going to have to head to the foot doc. Any suggestions? (Other than stay off my feet?) I don’t sit still very well.
