Many songbirds were calling quietly. Most young birds were on their own, but clearly not quite sure how to fend for themselves. Waterfowl numbers lie in the future.
In the hot, steamy shore weather, butterflies and dragonflies were in the air.
Here's a sample of the day ...
A few Monarch Butterflies were about, plus the occasional Viceroy which disguises itself as the foul-tasting Monarch ...
|Twelve-spotted Skimmer (somewhat the worse for wear judging by the left hind wing)|
|Black Saddlebags (female)|
|Green Heron (probably juvenile)|
|House Wren (juvenile)|
|Tricolored Heron (juvenile)|
|Chestnut-sided Warbler (juvenile)|
Good flying to all!
