Birding with Robb & Dane

My son, grandson, and I went out to the National Wildlife Visitor Center at Patuxent Wildlife Refuge yesterday for a few hours of great birding in 60 degree temperatures.  We saw 24 species including our FOY Eastern Bluebird and Yellow-rumped Warbler.

The bare trees made spotting birds easy.  Here Dane (l) and Robb search for a house finch up ahead.

There were hundreds of Barn Swallows feeding and nesting.  The air was full of them.

As we finished, a noisy Red-bellied Woodpecker greeted us.

Since my gang is leaving for California soon, this is probably the last East Coast outing with them.  Next birding stop will be San Diego County which I’m looking forward to exploring with Dane.
