My First Northern Parula of 2014

I saw my first Northern Parula at Buck Creek SP today. He was singing near the Meadow View plaground despite the snow and cold.


Turkeys!

I was on my way home from work this morning and happened to take a diversion to Buck Creek Lane. There, I was able to watch a gang of Turkeys parading and sparring. It appeared that there were two willing hens, and the toms were vying for their rights. This tom was in full display, and he eventually bred the hen.

Rock Doves

These Rock Doves are nested in a dead tree stump at Old Reid Park. I caught them in flight during one of their "flybys."
