20150525 Some flying critters

Yesterday we spent some time amoung the black flies watching flying beasties…

A yellow rumped warbler was singing in the tag alders near Wrights Marina.



So was this Gray Catbird:



The red at the back of the crown identifies this as a Hairy Woodpecker. (Compare with Downy and Yellow Bellied Sapsucker)


This Red Admiral was flitting about:


This fellow was right out of Hitchcock’s  “Birds” as he made a low recce pass:


And there were many of these Chalk-fronted Corporals ( neat to see where that Wikipedia image was shot, eh?) on the Forest Access Road:


Rain is forecast here all day, so it will be interesting to see its effect on the birdies and insects.

Have a good week!
