P.M. stroll

There's no way to tell what's in town when you get to the park after 1 p.m. Most birders have departed so there's no way to tell what's been seen. Okay- walk, watch, listen.
First thing in my face, the nuthatch, a park regular.

Oh wow! The chestnut-sided warbler. Wait!! Don't fly away. Oh well, the one-second chestnut-sided.

Off to Tanner's Spring. One gorgeous brown thrasher.

The female black-throated blue warbler cautiously came down for a sip of water .

Lots of bug and seed eaters. The chickadee.

The bugs were so good in this spot that the wren ignored my presence.

I've never before seen a wren in this stance. Bug searching.

The early bird gets the worm. The afternoon stroller gets good things too.
