Above is my first veery of the year seen at Miller's Pond. I was the only one at the park. It was my 134th species seen this year in my county. I try to stay local so I won't burn much gas. This bird was Very cooperative. I followed it as it jumped to the ground for bits of food and then back into the base of Mountain Laurel. I followed it for a good 10 minutes for a distance of about 30 feet talking to it along the way- (Yes, I know birds can't understand me but it seemed we had an understanding).
So the birding action has been superb for me this week! I hope everyone else has been seeing their share of birds as well!
I should know the name of that butterfly, I saw dozens of them last week and my friend told me the name. There was so much to see in the forest that I think I forgot half of what I was searching for!
I've never seen a Veery. That is great!
that's a lovely butterfly, I'm guessing not one we have over in Scotland, though we have several blues here.
