Baby Birds Growing Up at our Cottage

August 16, 2015

Heading up to the lake, we saw four Sandhill Cranes outside of Venosta - a family!  They were very distant at the far side of a field, so did not stop for photos.

On the lake, the baby loons are growing ever larger, and there is no doubt now that they will survive to migrate.  Common Mergansers and Common Terns are also almost in adult plumage.  We saw a Common Goldeneye today too, which was unusual.

On shore, warblers are staging for migration now.   Today we saw Black and White, Chestnut-sided and Northern Parula, together with a Red-eyed Vireo.

Lots of Green Frogs in our pond.
