Lots of birds but nothing new.

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.

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.

  1. Hi Dina–I’m not much of a birder but love All your birds. Short question–re. the yellow trothed
    warbler–are those legs and toes normal for warblers? most birds? or there is something wrong with the otherwise very beautiful bird. Many thanks. Neddick

  2. Nice collection of birds. I think the top one is a Bay-breasted Warbler. They are quite large– I saw one last week and thought it was a vireo or oriole until I saw its head and bill– not like a blackbird or vireo.

  3. A great series of very beautiful birds! Sorry about the foot – mine always feels better when I can walk around bare-footed for a while – especially in the sand and the water – but that’s possibly not sensible where you live 🙂

  4. Roll your foot on a frozen water bottle, from the ball of the foot to the heel. You might to have some myofascial release massage on your foot as well. Plantar fasciitis can be a precursor to a heel spur. Thick heeled shoes, no barefoot walking, even in the house.
