Laura Erickson's For the Birds

Monday, May 17, 2010

Gee but it's great to be back home!

I haven't seen much of an actual migration wave since I've been home, but lots of warblers are back on territory in Port Wing and Duluth. My mother-in-law's neighborhood bears are still making an appearance despite her going out on her porch and yelling at them, and even firing bird shot at particularly persistent ones. I took a short walk along the Western Waterfront Trail Saturday morning, and a nice long walk with Photon in Port Wing yesterday, and everything feels so right.

  1. What a cute little fox!

    Great pix, Laura. I'm guessing the 5th picture is a white-crowned sparrow? I don't can't ID the birds all that well.

  2. The fifth photo is a Black-and-white Warbler. You can click on any photo and see what bird it is on its flickr page.
