This female summer tanager did not mind me watching her while she feasted on a beautyberry bush. Or, maybe she didn’t see me. I was hiding in the bushes after all. She stayed for a few minutes filling up on berries and then took off.
A female indigo bunting was hiding in the bushes.
A female rose breasted grosbeak was eating something high up in the tree.
Female woodpeckers. A pileated and a downy.
Both males and females look the same for thrashers and green herons so these could be either.
The usual birds at Chesnut park in July including that titmouse hanging upside down trying to get a bug.
I was hoping to see some baby deer in mid July but I think it was too early. Only adults and young bucks.
The usual critter in the swamp.
A usual summer storm was moving in.
The boardwalk swamp was full of water after days of rain. It was weird to be walking around with so much water. Even in the early morning it was hot, muggy and buggy. The last one is a quick video oft he sounds in the swamp.
Lots of different birds at Chesnut Park in early January but nothing new.
Bigger birds flying overhead.
I was trying to get some shots of the deer on the baseball field, She looked at me for a second and then took off to join her friends who were heading into the woods. Oh wait, that’s why they call them “white-tailed deer”.
