Summer Break

There comes a time in June when the migrant action slows down. it becomes more difficult to see birds through the expanding foliage and bugs start to stalk you. When I find myself running from deerflies it's time to take a break and change strategy. I will try to make it out earlier in the morning at select spots for shorter durations.
During my last trip out I watched some nesting Killdeer. At one point, they chased after a hawk.
There has been a Bald Eagle hanging out at this same branch for many months now. Not a bad set-up when you're king of the marsh!

I hope to get back out to a place that is cool and shady early in the morning this weekend. One or two hours of sedentary birding and I will be done for the day!

What a beautiful area to look for birds. I hope to get out again to the ponds and spend some time just relaxing and watching the local waterfowl.
