near Kimberton, Pennsylvania

In the farmland near Kimberton, Pennsylvania, (beyond Valley Forge) there is mostly open farmland, with patches of trees lining pastures and agricultural fields - a very different habitat from my home in southeastern Vermont but with many similar birds ... a few samples of the birds near my daughter's home ...

Eastern Bluebird ...


Baltimore Oriole ...


On the edge of an old farm pond, Solitary Sandpiper ...



... and in the narrow band of woods next to her home, several Wood Thrush singing in the morning and evening - such a delight to hear the flute notes of this wonderful songster ...


Also, a grandparents day with our grandson, and a soccer game, Mother's Day brunch with the mothers of my grandchildren and their mother. Next up ... a few days of birding in Cape May. It's just one thing afgter another -life can be tough!

Good birding!

Ohh! Love the photo of the Solitary Sandpiper! His eye ring is gorgeous... Your daughter is lucky to be able to hear the Wood Thrush's song from her home. I have to head to the woods at the trail to listen in the evening.
