It was a good weekend with the bird cam at the stream. Glad it can document for me when I am away.
Feel free to chime in with any IDs, because I have not taken the time. I know there is one chestnut sided warbler in there because it is so different looking.
these are all just in the order the camera took them.
For all you pond owners out there, that is watercress in the stream. At the beginning of the year, I buy a 4-pack at the greenhouse. The owner tells me that only me and one other woman buy it. He has it in the herb section, he needs to pot some up for the pond plants. Anyway, I harvest this (my mom uses it) and I constantly have to thin it. By this time of the year I am throwing some of it out. It grows on the pond edges but really loves the moving water.
Oh, you're already seeing warbler at the stream! I keep watch on mine, but none so far. Nice job on setting up your bird cam, your getting some nice shots with it!
I'm glad you mentioned the watercress, I will see if I can find some here, for next year.
I'm really surprised that you are not seeing them Burn. I thought you would probably have them all year long.
Here's a few more that are not all warblers. The robins have been absent, though I heard one the other day.
1- American Redstart (love that fanned tail)
2- Red-breasted Nuthatch (I never see the white-breasted nuthatch here)
3- Goldfinch and Cardinal
4- Swainson's Thrush
5- House sparrows. I put this one in there so you can just see the mania.
