One Third of the Year 2020

2020 has been weird. To cope, I have been birding.

1 Salomon

Salomon Farm Park

In February (I think), I went to an event at Salomon Farm Park on the north side of Fort Wayne. I had never been there before, but it offered some good birds.

2 EABL

Eastern Bluebird

3 HAWO

Hairy Woodpecker

4 MODO

Mourning Dove

5 LESC

Lesser Scaup

6 HOLA

Horned Lark

In March, I had to travel to Warrick County in the southern part of Indiana for work (before everything blew up). I stopped by Blue Grass Fish & Wildlife Area one of the days I was there.

7 KILL

The Lord of all Killdeer

8 EAME

I think this is my first ever photo of an Eastern Meadowlark

9 NOMO

Northern Mockingbird

10 SWSP

Swamp Sparrow

In April, I started going to Franke Park a lot, hoping to pick up migrants.

11 HETH

Hermit Thrush

13 WTSP 2

White-throated Sparrow

12 YTWA

Yellow-throated Warbler – my favorite warbler

Working from home, I was able to pick up my second ever county Pine Warbler from my living room window one morning.

PIWA

Pine Warbler

I took a family hike at Bicentennial Woods yesterday.

15 SWTH

My son is the one who first spotted this Swainson’s Thrush

And finally to get caught up with the present, today I had an incredible 50-species, 20-FOY day at Franke Park.

16 LOWA

Louisiana Waterthrush

17 OSPR

Super random but incredibly exciting flyover Osprey

That’s all! I am still green listing and 5MRing. I am not on Facebook, though. I had to get off for my own mental health between news of viruses in the white house and elsewhere. So, I have had less motivation to share bird photos, which is why they have built up for four months.
