Pilot Mountain Birds of the Day

Princess Gail and I spent a beautiful fall morning at Pilot Mountain State Park. We spotted 15 bird species, including the ever present Pine Warbler, and lots of Blue Jays (a group of 4 and then a group of 10.) Here are the birds of the day:

A Scarlet Tanager (probably female vs winter male)…

a Red-breasted Nuthatch

and a Broad-winged Hawk.

It was a fun time! Wish you could have joined us! :-)

    Beautiful photos of the birds. We have really enjoyed the birds in our area. Right now, we have so many humingbirds stopping to feed before the head across the Gulf of Mexico.

      Thanks, Pam!
      Our hummingbirds disappeared about a week ago. You must be getting the last of the migrants. Do you get a variety of different hummers? Or do you just get Ruby-throateds like we do?

    can you please email me so I can ask about possibly using one of your photos that might be copyrighted? Thanks

      … and speaking of migrants just passing through… thanks for the visit, Marilou! 😉
