For the past several weeks we’ve been hearing Northern Parula Warblers in the small wooded area along the Scioto River below Griggs Reservoir Dam. Hoping to get photograph before it leafs out making the bird(s) impossible to find, we’ve made several trips trying to locate them. So far we haven’t had any luck getting a photograph but have been compensated for our efforts by other things.
Tree roots intrigue along the river running high from recent rains;
Trying to make up for the absence of the Northern Parula a Red-eyed Vireo puts forth it’s best effort;
Wildflowers continue to fascinate;
A male American Redstart in a nearby bush checks us out;
Finally, a quick trip to Houston for our son’s graduation from Rice and a stop in Georgia to visit my aging mom resulted in a few pictures that have nothing to do with central Ohio but seemed too nice not to share.
