A summer walk

Went tromping around some meadows with the binoculars yesterday evening. Didn't see too many birds, but there were a lot of butterflies. Yellow Swallowtails, Black Swallowtails, Monarchs, and many smaller ones I don't know the names of. I will have to get a nice butterfly guide sometime.

An Eastern Towhee singing from the top of a cedar was the birding highlight. Also some goldfinches, a Pheobe, and Turkey Vultures soaring overhead. I guess it will be another month till the warblers come though.
