I heard what I thought might be a Scarlet Tanager (they say its song sounds like a hoarse Robin) and shortly after, I saw it high in a treetop. It's my only Scarlet Tanager sighting out in nature since my Dad showed me my first one years ago at the Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary (coincidentally also high in a treetop). I had a good view of it through my binoculars, even if it is just a speck in the photo! And I was correct about the song, which makes me very happy!
Scarlet Tanager (Come on! I know if you squint, you can see it!)
Pearl Crescent and American Copper butterflies were flying all over the dam. Also, Blue-Eyed Grass was blooming on the dam. I don't remember seeing it there prior years....
(glad to see she is still nesting)
