Right off the bat we spotted Northern Pintails which we had not seen here before.
This little guy is a difficult ID for me but I was hoping someone would be able to help me with this one. My expert in Massachusetts tells me this is a female Ruddy Duck.
At one point I slipped off the trail to see if I could get a shot of a Yellow Warbler that was flitting nearby and this male Bobcat walked slowly by me maybe seven feet away. It showed no concern that I was there stopping to mark it's territory and moving twenty feet away, cleaning itself and then laying down in full view of me.
I believe that this is an immature White Crowned Sparrow but my sparrow skills are sadly lacking so I could be wrong.
We were fortunate to spot this life lister for both of us. The Black Throated Gray Warbler is a great find and one of the highlights of the day.
The Abert's Towhee keeps very close to the underbrush so that it can scurry to safety and feed at the same time.
