Little Blue Heron at Nathan Krestul Park today:
As darkness fell tonight, I spotted a Hermit Thrush taking an energetic bath in our backyard bubbler. As it was standing on the edge of the bubbler, shaking off water, a second Hermit Thrush flew into the oleander next to the bubbler. For weeks, few birds have been visible in our backyard. Seed and nuts go uneaten. I hear the birds–today, a Red-bellied Woodpecker and Tufted Titmice–but they remain out of sight.
