We didn't try very hard this week - busy with work and all... hence the title, birding lite.
but here's a photo to keep things interesting!!
Dog Vomit Slime Mold, Fuligo septica - ID by Lynn, our resident Slime Mold expert
found in a landscaped area here at W.C.
and now on to the bird list for the week of May 30 to June 3, 2011
Willow Flycatcher - back in the same place as last year - the grassy slope between A-21 and A-42
Cedar Waxwing - suddenly reappeared in numbers, nesting activity beginning
Indigo Bunting, Passerina cyanea - new to WC!! - a male singing away from exposed perches near a clearing
31 species for the week
And - for those of you who never get to the top of a Tulip Tree, Liriodendron tulipifera, here's what the flowers look like! These were actually at eye level, but usually they're too high to see. This is one of the fabulous specimen trees bordering the parking lot here in building A-21.
