Mead Check After Banding

Just another routine check of Mead Garden on the way home. It was very quiet but I eventually heard a chipping from the trees near the pump house. I was hoping for something else but I still enjoy seeing Northern Parulas feeding in the trees.

Met up with Donna and Mike and we spied this baby Red-eared Slider heading out for some warmth.

We did find a Louisiana Waterthrush but it was being a bit too discrete. Had to settle for a White Ibis up on the old downed tree by the pond.

Nothing else of note but at least Mike got his first Louisiana Waterthrush shot. Watching and waiting for more migrants.

Sounds like a nice time, even if it's slow.
