I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Sunday bird blogging

The bird picture reserves are getting low, and my visit to the park yesterday didn't replenish them. One woman who stopped me to commiserate over the lack of birds mentioned that she had only seen a northern parula and a male Baltimore oriole, and was so disappointed. At that point I had seen a couple of robins.

My luck didn't improve, but it was a beautiful day and I'm still thrilled to find myself outside, so I didn't mind that much. So here's a bad photo of what I think is a female gadwall mallard* in the Turtle Pond.

*Found another picture of what I think is the same duck and found the blue side feathers that are invisible in this shot.
