McCluggage Bridge panorama. While looking around the little park at the end of Lorentz Ave, it suddenly grew extremely quiet. We looked and saw there was no traffic on the bridge. I took a quick panorama to mark the event. Soon the cars and trucks returned with the usual background roar.

Cement Silo on the Dike at Bell's Landing, Banner Marsh.
Tuesday morning Scott and I drove down to Bell's Landing at Banner Marsh to see if we could find the nesting Osprey that the Goodners reported seeing. They were right where they said they would be, on an electrical directly behind the old cement silo. We also looked for the Orchard Orioles that the Goodners reported seeing but did not find them. We did find a female Baltimore Oriole, several Indigo Buntings, and a flock of American Goldfinch, as well as three Belted Kingfishers. Look at the Archive for 06/06/06 to see the Osprey photographs.

Female Baltimore Oriole sitting on the suspension bridge at Bell's Landing. I prevously thought this was an Orchard Oriole, but the color was wrong for that species. I'll go with female Baltimore, as suggestd by a couple of IBET members. It was fun watching her drink from the hardware holding up the bridge. She flitted from piece to piece drinking a little at each spot.
