At St. Mary's pond, an Osprey flew above us, carrying a fish in its talon.
Yellow warblers were flitting around and singing as well, as were
Cedar waxwing's did put in their appearance. In total, for St. Mary's pond, we ended up with 36 different species of birds.
We then traveled to Miantonomi Park, Newport , where we picked up another 38 different species of birds, of course, there was duplications in the lists.
We were able to observe and photograph a 2nd year male Summer Tanager, and then a little later a Cooper's Hawk's did stay around long enough for me to obtain in its picture.
We observed a white eyed Vireo at a nest, which at first we thought that it was building, but, on further observation the Vireo was returning and taking material from that nest to add to its nest wherever it was hidden.
So ended another good day of birding, we did see some deer, rabbits, and butterflies, but that those pictures will be for later.
