The Yellow girl loves her bath, and she took two.

I was beat by the belted kingfishers again, no surprise there. But when I was waiting for either of them to return with fish. I was able to see the arguments among the killdeers. One had dug another nest, couldn't see whether there are eggs.

There were four of them, sometimes the spotted sandpipers were caught in cross fire

Everyone was excited. I had no idea whether the two seagulls were fighting or courting. And they chose to display that so close in front of me, I couldn't always keep them both in the frame. And on top of that, about 10 geese bathing. Why? They live in water half of the time...

Finally, someone came for a drink. Fingers crossed

I love your yellow warbler shots. The first one looks like it's undergoing a quantum leap in search of Sam Beckett. The profile shot is a little underexposed but makes up for that with the nest building material it has collected. The catbird on the rock is priceless.

Thanks for working on my photos. I thought you would like the killdeer with the green back ground.  They were so much fun, when I'm in a distance they consider safe. Belted Kingfisher has cunning plans.

The Orioles are quite fun to watch, I can still hear them getting a night cap.

Great variety as usual.
Are those your hummingbird feeders? I thought your landlord wasn't too receptive of any feeder.

Yeah, my landlord's main issue was squirrels. The squirrels did come and check. I guess they couldn't get the drink after all.
Dunno when I can get to the night heron. Don't want to go during the long weekend.
