Great day for the birds

Today wasn't phenomenal by Island "fall-out" standards, but the bird drop today was quite satisfactory with many warblers, orioles, buntings, and such. Not as many Orchard Orioles as in the past but the light rain and cool north wind pushed them down pretty good for a while.

Unfortunately my camera isn't good at zooming distances for close-up shots so if anybody would like to share a picture, please email me at

I stopped feeding the red-wing blackbirds on Scarlet Colley’s advice, since those pigs were running off all the smaller birds. We threw some seed out by other huisache trees where the migrants were roosting. They seemed to like that. A good Friday even if cool and a bit rough for the beach or fishing.
