Here are have three long-billed curlews (Numenius americanus) from reader Stephen Barnard, who notes: “This is a new bird for me, #83 on the Aubrey Spring Ranch species list.”
Reader Randy from Iowa sent three photos of a bird I don’t think we’ve had here before:
This is the first day I have seen the Baltimore Oriole, Icterus galbula, back for the summer. The first is a photo of the typical nest and then a couple of the bird. Very striking bird, even from the back. If you put the sliced orange out, they will find you.
Swan (Cygnus; species unidentified)
Marsh Wren (Cistothorus palustris):
Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis):
