Today's Birds and Butterflies

These are from my morning walk at Breakneck Hill Conservation Land:

Common Wood Nymph

Great Spangled Fritillary

 Eastern Tailed Blue

Eastern Kingbird
(It just finished eating some of the fruit)

 Pearl Crescent

 Common Ringlet

American Goldfinch

In the afternoon, I took a walk at Drumlin Farm.  I was hoping that the flower field would yield some good butterflies.

Tawny-Edged Skipper

Common Ringlet

Great Spangled Fritillary


Eastern Tiger Swallowtail


 Gray Hairstreak

 Clouded Sulphur

 Peck's Skippers (mating)

 Common Sootywing

 Silver-Spotted Skipper

Crab Spider with its prey

 American Goldfinch
King of the Coneflowers


Red Admiral

Black Swallowtail

 White-Tailed Deer
(feeding time in the deer pen)

And back at home, the House Wrens look like they are about ready to fledge!

Tonight, the boys and I went out again to watch the moon rise.  We almost missed it in the haze, but once it got above the haze, it was a beautiful orange color!

 See how easy it would have been to miss it?  Danny actually spotted it before I did!
