A July’s day

The Tree Swallows at home.

Sun came out for a change. All that brightness and all those shadows kept the birds in hiding for the most port—that, and the presence of so many babies. But I got a peek at a fledgling Song Sparrow, spotted an angry yellowthroat with a beak full of food. Warm, breezy. Good quick hike.

Elsewhere, I spied turkeys, an Osprey, and a Cooper’s Hawk carrying a rodent of some kind.

All in the course of a July’s day.
