Ruby-crowned Kinglets continue to be one of the most abundant songbirds anywhere you go. On occasion, they will sit still long enough, without too many branches in the way, and allow for a recognizable photo.
Warblers, those brightly coloured feathered jewels most birders look forward to seeing in large numbers during May, are arriving as they should be. Not like birders hope they might, dripping off the trees, but at least with enough around that a solid effort will result in 10 or more species on the day's list.
Black-throated Green Warblers are scattered about.
I finally saw my first Black-and-white Warbler of the spring. It is usually an early one, but they have not been plentiful yet in this area it seems.
The very south end of the South Point Trail continues to change due to the relentless wave action. This first image was taken from about where a bench overlooking the lake used to be, but got undercut by wave action a few years ago. Now the waves are throwing up sand over the road and obliterating it.
On a final note, the 'resident' White-winged Dove continues to deposit nesting material to the top of the sloped stove pipe at cottage lot 17168. It will be interesting to see how long this behaviour continues this year.
