Season Two Wrap up

Scarlet Tanager2905Another season of birds of the bog has come to a close, and what an amazing season it was! Some new discoveries we made this year include an Osprey and an Ovenbird, a Warbling Vireo and a Blue-headed Vireo. We saw a Summer Tanager and a Solitary Sandpiper. There was a Golden-winged Warbler and a Cape May Warbler, those were good days! I got some amazing photos of the Scarlet Tanagers and Eastern Towhees this year; two of my favorite birds. The Pileated Woodpeckers were extremely cooperative this year, even showing up in my back yard several times! The waterfowl put on a good show this year as well, we saw mergansers, Ring-necked Ducks, Ruddy Ducks, shovelers, buffleheads and a whole bunch more. There’s a ground hog living in the woods, who knew!?!? Even the squirrels seemed to take some time out of their busy schedules to mug for the camera. I’d like to thank all of you for following along this season, and here’s to a successful bird and squirrel filled season three!Osprey1646
