Carolina Chickadee searching curled leaves for a meal and...
beaver dam, the area under the power line looks more like a pond than a swamp. The changing habitat has attracted a Muscovy Duck (Cairina moschata), which based on the color is likely an escaped domesticated bird.
While trying to get the shot of the newly-arrived Muscovy Duck, a Pileated Woodpecker landed overhead.
Blue Grosbeak (Guiraca caerulea) ate seeds from the grasses growing in the flooded area. Shortly after spying the grosbeak, a male Indigo Bunting (Passerina cyanea) arrived and kept watch nearby.
To put a wrap on today, a Carolina Anole worked his way into the sun to do a few pushups and show off his dewlap. The air temperature may not have reached 70F today, so the lizard was not his bright green self.
Although we would almost always opt to be outdoors, it sure is nice to have an office with a view!
