Scarlet Tanager

as the spring brings buds
seed pods from last year rattle
Scarlet Tanager

Black-and-white Warbler

                                        finding bugs in moss
                                        on the last day of April
                                        Black-and-white Warbler

Cedar Waxwings

above the old fort
a flock of Cedar Waxwings
follows the coastline

Limpkin & Chicks

Posted by Picasa

Solitary Sandiper

                                              the large eye of the
                                              Solitary Sandpiper
                                              makes it look afraid

Glossy Ibis

                                             shimmering wings
                                             on the hot April morning
                                             the Glossy Ibis

Limpkin



                                       why did the Limpkin
                                       quite unpoetically
                                       cross the gravel road?
