September is picking up; new sightings included A Rose Breasted Grosbeak, which looks like a first Winter and A Great Crested Flycatcher. Still around are the Orioles, (though numbers have decreased), Carolina Wrens, American Goldfinches, Alder Flycatchers and the Veery. The other usual backyard visitors, like the Robins, Catbirds, Cardinals, Northern Mockingbirds, Sparrows, Mourning Doves are all popping in and out at their leisure. Here are some photos.
Great Crested Flycatcher.
Rose Breasted Grosbeak...looks like a first Winter. I had a couple visit a platform feeder a few years ago, but this is the first to visit in awhile.
Carolina Wren...a very hard subject to photograph as it is a bird that is always on the move.
Gray Catbird on a Barberry Bush...looks like it is eating the blossoms.
