Stopped by Nathan Krestul Park on my way home from work.  Nineteen juvenile White Ibis were on the mud flats.

This showboat cocked its tail every time it sang a note:


Red-winged Blackbird (“Who you calling a showboat?”)

Also saw a Little Blue Heron (juvenile) and an Eastern Phoebe, who should have left for northern parts by now.

At home, I saw the male Ruby-throated Hummingbird and got my first picture of it this year:

Also saw a pair of Gray Catbirds, a pair of Northern Cardinals, a pair of House Finches, a few Mourning Doves, a lone Carolina Wren, and this lone American Goldfinch, who also should have left for northern parts by now:
