This Blue-winged Teal may be more afraid of moving along than staying put. I hear the Peregrine on the mountain a lot. He probably does too. I wonder where the female that was here yesterday is. You don't think...? This male has stayed hidden in the brush all day until I accidentally flushed it into the water for a few minutes, then it went back into hiding again under those bushes hanging out over the water (see post of April 14th).

Moving right along
The baby House Finches have left the nest. The season's first Varied Bunting has arrived right on schedule. One thing not moving along is the female Rose-breasted Grosbeak. She seems content right where she's at, and you know what tree that is.
