Montrose Point, April 15-16, 2017

Many sparrows about. Some firsts, such as the Savannah Sparrow. Saw a beautiful Tree Swallow toward the shore on the 16th. No photo of the Tree Swallow because as soon as it perched, it was chased away by a Red-winged Blackbird.

Things we saw but did not get a good picture of: Brown-headed Cowbird, Mourning Doves (2), Chipping Sparrows, Brown Thrashers, and more.

On the way to Montrose Point, May 12

On the way there a Baltimore Oriole flew into a tree, high up, before I got to the harbor. Across from the tree were small fields where many small birds were busy looking for food. A very good day. The pictures, though… mostly birds with their heads behind something or too fuzzy. The better ones are below.
