Day 149 - 28th May 2016 - Cedar Waxwing, Palm Warbler, Swallows and Trillium

The sun seems to be sluggish this morning but the the Song Sparrows are at full volume with a few Finches singing back up. Somewhere in the mix I hear a Northern Parula. So it's a day to do a little shopping and some birding. A much needed trip to Yarmouth. I dislike shopping these days to the list has to become sizable for me to venture in stores besides the quick round of groceries. Mixing it with bird watching makes it seem ok though.
Good day in the hood. Saw lots of Yellow-rumped Warblers, Palm Warblers, Hermit Thrushes and Song Sparrow. Heard a number of Ovenbirds. The Cedar Waxwings arrived in the apple trees in the morning to feast on the apple blossoms. Many farmers wouldn't be happy but we have old trees without great apples so I'm fine with them. It was a day to enjoy life and putter around, got a few things done that needed to be finished off.

The Palm Warbler has found himself a nice little juicy worm.
Guess they've got their nest finished and it's time for baby making

Trillium are in bloom now. Everything is moving right along in the forest.

Enjoy your day!
