Trees for Tomorrow

Loon nesting in Eagle River, right by a public dock (which has been closed for the duration). I took the photo at a long distance, with my spotting scope.

Eastern Towhee

Red-eyed Vireo

Alder Flycatcher

We had pretty lousy weather this morning--misty and dim, and a bit windy--so there weren't a lot of birds singing and light was bad for photographs, but I'm not complaining! Not everyone got to see it, but a handful of people got their best look at a Mourning Warbler ever--with luck, throughout the week we'll be seeing more so by week's end maybe EVERYONE will have great looks.
