Churchville Park • May 25

Black Creek. This is the view where we put in with our kayaks.

Painted Turtles

Great Blue Heron

Painted Turtle. You have to be seated in a kayak in the water to get views like this!

Turkey Vulture. This bird was "cleaning up" something.

Spotted Sandpiper

Warbling Vireo. This is another common, yet visually elusive bird. The fact that they are a plain gray and white bird makes them even harder to spot. However, their song is a true warbling masterpiece! It was a lucky break to find one on creekside in the open.
