Are birds. I have done some woodworking, but nothing of note. But I’ve been out birding a bit. So if you’re here to see the woodworking, you can skip this one – and I’m back in the shop tomorrow. Last week I posted the male eastern towhee – here’s the female (Pipilo erythrophthalmus).
Next is a male magnolia warbler (Setophaga magnolia)
And then a blue gray gnatcatcher (Polioptila caerulea). Most of these birds we find way up high in the trees…hurts your neck, and makes a lot of the photos the underside of the bird.
Except the veery (Catharus fuscescens) and the other thrushes. All the thrushes we see in the spring love the shady parts of the woods and sing the most beautiful songs of all. Seems like most springs, Marie & I literally almost run into a veery in the woods in Hingham where we walk. This one was sometimes too close for my camera.
This one is back at the shop, down near the river. A house wren (Troglodytes aedon) who has now moved into a gourd-bird house.
On another walk this morning, I saw this Baltimore oriole (Icterus galbula) working on her nest.
And working on it from inside
And I’ll close for now with an ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapilla) another one who likes the shady woods.
Daniel edited another video, I just haven’t checked it yet. Next day or two. Scratch-stock molding is the subject.
