The Jordan Lake Neighborhood Roundup, part 2
songbirds and flycatchers
This medium sized flycatcher was still just long enough for me catch its profile.
This songster was a new addition to my life list. It is a summer breeder here.
He has a beak that is crammed full with insects.
The pewee often has a favorite look-out perch branch and will return to it in-between catching flying insects.
This is a pair of wood-pewee fledglings that are playing king-of-the-perch-branch.
Just how handsome can a bird get?
The bird to the right is the parent chickadee.
The bird to the left is a newly fledged chickadee – still very awkward in flight.
