I did see a lot of nice birds, too. Several tree tops were decorated with Eastern Bluebirds.

In the afternoon, I took a walk at Beals Preserve. On the way there, I noticed a red fox in someone's front yard, so I stopped and took some photos! He/she was very itchy!
On to Beals Preserve....I saw a Green Heron and three Eastern Painted Turtles sunning themselves at the Ice Pond.

I walked down to the channel, looking for butterflies as I went. There was a lot of Joe Pye Weed in bloom but very little flying. I did see a couple of Common Ringlets, one Common Wood Nymph and two Clouded Sulphurs.

Northern Mockingbird (sure looks like a juvenile)
