An Assortment of Activity

Hopefully the low pressure system that has kept us cool, rainy and skies gray will move on.  I am really sick of the yucky weather.  I went out a bit after lunch as things were improving.  A Red-bellied Brown Snake was out searching for a meal swimming among the lily pads and waiting to spring on an opportune meal.

Late yesterday afternoon as the sun peaked out for a bit, it was like opening the flood gate for Northern Parulas.  Their buzzing filled the trees.

Very late in the afternoon and clouds were coming back in, I happened by the window and to my surprise, a male Red-breasted Grosbeak.  I see a female come through almost every year but have never seen a male.  I wish it had been a little earlier in the day or not so much cloud cover.

If the weather is nice tomorrow, I am going to go and try to call out the Hooded Warbler.  Such cute little birds.  I checked yesterday and they are still in the same location as last year.
