Stopped by Nathan Krestul Park on my way home from work today, drawn by a Great Blue Heron perched up high in a tree.

Down below I saw a Little Blue Heron, and, nearby, a Tricolored Heron, both hunting in the marsh.

Then a Belted Kingfisher flew over my head and alighted nearby.

Apparently the sound of my camera bothered her, for she soon flew away for a higher perch.

And for birds new to me this season:  three Palm Warblers and one Eastern Phoebe.
