It was a beautiful morning for a walk after all the rain we had. It was sunny and cool. There were 11 of us in total including our organizer and guide Joel.
Our guide Joel with a Orgyia definita larvae also known as a definite-marked tussock moth.
We saw some Canada Geese flying overhead.
There were adult and juvenile Cedar Waxwings here and there.
A Cooper’s Hawk juvenile landed on a tree close by. We noticed there were some downy feathers on the lower part of the chest.
There was a juvenile basking in the sun. I think it is a Juvenile Red-eyed Vireo.
Two adult Red-eyed Vireos were chasing each other. I managed to get a shot.
Nearby a Downy Woodpecker was looking for breakfast.
There were plenty Mallard Ducks.
A Northern Cardinal (female)
A couple of Eastern Kingbirds.
An American Goldfinch landed in the patch of flowers in front of me.
We heard a few Grey Catbirds calling and this one landed on a branch nearby.
Lots of American Robins.
We heard a family of House Wrens sounding the alarm and easily found them.
Some Northern Flickers in a tree.
We came across this orange Dragonfly.
Walking around we notice a Monarch Butterfly. Yes, this is a Monarch and not a Viceroy.
That all for today’s walk.
