In keeping a 2017 species list, I have come to terms that not every outing would result in adding a bird to my list. I really thought today would be one of those days, of course, it wasn't...
|A bird (#185) for the 2017 list-- Summer Tanager. Unlike the scarlet it is all red and has a much thicker bill that seems blunt at the tip.|
|Not a bird-- husband says its an F18 jet.|
|Refueling above the cemetery.|
|A good outing for Eastern Kingbirds. These guys are big and look sharp-- and with the sun coming out they looked great!|
|A yellow warbler stalking its quarry, insects hiding between leaves and stems.|
|The usual sight in Green-Wood, but never taken for granted, the Northern Mockingbird.|
