Rose Surfeit & a Great Day Birding

Hard to know where to begin. Birding this morning at Herrick's Cove was about as good as it gets in southeastern Vermont in early May with 78 species, including 14 warbler species - one apple tree with Prairie, Nashville, and Wilson's.

However, few birds wanted their portraits taken, so I only have these two ...

Solitary Sandpiper

Nashville Warbler

Around the house yesterday and today, we have had a surfeit of Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, abundant almost to excess. At least five males and a couple of completely disinterested females.

She wants nothing to do with him ... yet!

Good Birding!!

Nice Nash! I got my life Nashville Warbler yesterday on Cape Ann.

Kelly said... that sandpiper shot, and lucky you with the Nashville Warbler. I love those warblers, but I haven't seen any yet this year. I usually get to see a few. I'll keep my fingers crossed!
