Occupy the Wakarusa Wetlands

Every picture I post this week will be from the area of the Wakarusa Wetlands that will be obliterated by the SLT. I have hundreds of pictures of hundreds of species who will be displaced and/or killed by greed and indifference.

This will be gone. Click on pictures to enlarge.

Spring fallout

Today was a great day for seeing little birds. With the south wind and warm weather, spring arrivals were everywhere. I hope they all do well over the next few days of rain and cold.  I saw my first of the season Baltimore oriole, numerous warblers, FOS Eastern kingbird, and more little blue-gray gnatcatchers than I could count. While they were just too fast for pictures, I also got great looks at indigo and painted buntings, a summer tanager, and an American redstart. What a day for colorful birds!

A morning of little birds

I went looking for warblers this morning and was rewarded with a Prothonotary. What cuties they are. There were several of them working the trees. I also saw quite a few of the little gnat catchers and a host of young barn and tree swallows. The weather was amazing. What a nice morning to sneak out. Click on pictures to enlarge.

Between storms

It was a great morning to be out. I was able to spend some time at both the Wakarusa Wetlands and Clinton Lake before getting rained out. Click on pictures to enlarge.

Wonderful Wakarusa Wetlands

Sadly, my camera is off getting fixed and I have no idea how long it will be away. I’ve been so busy with work these last few weeks that I am way behind on updating the blog. The good news is, I have a nice assortment of pictures to post over the next few days and can’t wait to share them. 🙂 These are from a long walk in the Wetlands on August 16.

Warblers wobble, but…

This little cutie came to check me out when I was taking pictures at the wetlands on Monday. It’s amazing how these little ones will travel a hundred miles or more in a night during migration. Click on picture to enlarge.
