Hobomok Skipper enjoying the pollinator garden
This morning Sharon and I walked at BHCL. I didn't focus too much on nature sightings, but we did stop to check out the Indigo Bunting.
In the afternoon, I walked at Westboro WMA, hoping for warblers. Highlights were:
After work I headed over to Waseeka Wildlife Sanctuary, figuring it was time to check on the Pileated Woodpeckers and the Ospreys nesting there.
It was a beautiful night for a walk!
Pearl Crescents, flirting
Oh, look, a distant sighting of a Pileated Woodpecker!
I started heading towards the tree, where the nest is, but of course it took off before I could approach. It did happen to fly towards me as it departed, so I attempted a flight shot.
OK, so its "just" a Song Sparrow, but would you look at the leaves that are framing it? Love it!
Christmas in May!

I had to stop at the drug store on the way home, and I happened to glance over at the spot where I found lupines last year. Surprise! They are out! Unfortunately, the road that used to go right past the lupine field is no more. It's much harder to get a look at them now.
