I’m thinking this is a pine warbler. Fairly common but confusing. Looks like a lot of other female yellow birds.
A very common but pretty white-eyed vireo.
I think this is an immature pine warbler in the 2 above.
Blue headed vireos are becoming common this time of year.
This little chickadee was being too cute. He came down close to the boardwalk looking to see if I had a handout. All of the above were taken at Chesnut Park on a Saturday morning in early January. Someone had left seed on the boardwalk before I had gotten there and the birds were very active.
On the way home I stopped by another park to see if the owls were nesting again this year. She was up in the nest still on eggs, taking a nap. This couple gets a little later start than most owls in the area.

Wonderful images, I especially like the owl, well camouflaged. Chickadees seem to have no fear of people, always expecting a handout.
I grew up in Maryland and I remember the sound of the Chickadee. My brothers and sisters would sing back to the birds:
(That’s what it sounded like to us)
A wonderful post for MyCornerOfTheWorld, love the sleeping owl… thank you for sharing. I wish you a good week.

Great series of images, especially of the Great Horned Owl on the nest. They are already nesting here too.
