Birding Heaven at BHCL

Tree Swallows, setting up housekeeping

 Savannah Sparrow

Gray Catbird

 Indigo Bunting in a blossoming apple tree

I saw a flash of blue fly into the apple tree, and it took me a second to spot it against the blue sky.  It blended in so well!  What a breath-taking beauty!


 Magnolia Warbler

The tall oak bordering the pond on the far side of the property has been very popular with warblers.  Those leaf buds contain a lot of worms.  This beauty was not easy to spot, either, due to its yellow and black coloring blending in so well with the new leaf growth, but oh! when it came out in the open!  What a sight to see!

 Love, love love!
