Belle Isle

This post covers Sunday (eBird checklist) before Easter and Easter Sunday (eBird checklist).

Brown Creeper

Above and below:  Eastern Phoebe in forsythia.

On the red-headed woodpecker trail, on the right side, I was surprised to see a Blanding's turtle.

Female American Robin

The only Fox Sparrow seen or heard all morning.

Easter Sunday female Red-wing Blackbirds

Above and below:  The elegant, little white trout lily (Erythronium albidum) was abundant.

Probably female first spring Red-bellied Woodpecker.

In a large puddle in the field just beyond the Maritime Museum, I was surprised to see a male Blue-winged Teal hanging out with a mallard pair.

Finally, I was able to get a shot of female Rusty Blackbird.
