First of all, let me say the birding was slow this past weekend. A few migrating shorebirds at Edinburgh retaining pond was about it. Otherwise the birds were quiet. I spent a lot of time Saturday morning walking the edges of fields that might have Sedge Wrens. No luck. And I didn’t hear any Wood Thrushes anywhere either. It’s probably a function of not being in the right habitat in previous years but I had my first August Dickcissel in 3 years.
The best bird was an Osprey circling over the parking lot after work Monday in Shelbyville. Seemed a little out-of-place. I will go ahead and post a few pictures from this weekend.
And let me add we are moving again next week. I probably need to write a post how the location change might or might not affect my birding. So for the month of August there might not be many posts. But then again there might be more since I will be hanging out in Starbucks more.
