Cardinal families were all over the park. Lots of very young ones born this spring. The young ones look scruffy with their adult feathers coming in.

There were also Carolina wrens everywhere.

The best find was the great crested flycatcher families. I saw two different ones at opposite ends of the park.  Both had juveniles that didn’t quite have their adult feathers in. I don’t see these often. They stayed high up in the trees and don’t get close to look for a handout like the resident birds do.

  1. Wonderful nature closeups, I saw a cardinal yesterday, they seem so above it all no pun intended. That photo with the insect in the beak and on the head, wowsa.

  2. Such cute little birds with wonderful names. I especially loved the titmouse, such an expressive face. Have a wonderful Wednesday.

  3. Great captures of the usual suspects! Those flycatchers are a real gem! Titmice are one of my favorites! and scruffy babies are always fun to watch. Have a wonder-filled week.
