Backyard Nuthatch

White-breasted Nuthatch 


With the fall migration, the White-breasted Nuthatches have become common in our yard. The brown creeper is not far behind.

We went to Sandy Hook again for the fall migration. Many birds liked the berries on these trees. We are just learning to identify birds and aren't ready to start on trees yet.

More birds from Sandy Hook

Yellow-Rumped Warbler


Juvenile Black Crowned Night Heron




Some more birds from Sandy Hook. The Yellow-Rumped Warbler was everywhere. The juvenile night heron was at the south pond. Mike thinks the third bird is a type of flycatcher probably a phoebe. The last is a sparrow not sure what type.

The juvenile yellow-bellied sapsucker was a nice find at Sandy Hook. In the top photo, you can see a bit of red on the head if you click to enlarge. We get an occasional sapsucker at our house, but had never seen a juvenile before.

Heckyl and Jeckyl

Cormorants

We returned home for our daily dose of cormorants. We now call them Heckyl and Jeckyl. We're not sure if they have a funny name for the two humans who observe them daily.
