Ridgefield, Fernhill Wetlands

I went up to Ridgefield the other morning to see what was going on.  Nothing new really, besides even more goose babies.  Here the mom or the dad had just chased off another goose and was really pumped...



I saw two pairs of Redheads that morning.


I saw a Lincoln's Sparrow get chased by a Yellow-rumped Warbler.  I don't think I had ever seen a Lincoln's there before.


I had a Myrtle Warbler pose nicely for me...


I never get sick of Cinnamon Teals...


I saw two more sets of goslings that morning...


A Yellow-headed Blackbird actually let me get some decent photos...


That was about it for Ridgefield.  This morning I went over to Fernhill Wetlands for a few hours...  The resident domestic ducks were a bit frisky (the white one in particular).


There were swallows everywhere... Peeking out of nest boxes...


Bringing home new furnishings...


Discussing how to get the new furnishings inside the house...


I was hoping for a better variety of warblers, but I only saw Yellow-rumped, yellowthroats, and a single Orange-crowned.  There were also lots of goose babies.


That was about it for photos... Good times!  And tomorrow is Birdathon!
