The first bird Mom saw was a very amenable-to-posing Eastern Kingbird!
|"It's good to be the King!"|
Mom must have taken 87 million shots of him. He was highly cooperative.
The next bird wasn't quite so eager to please - the Baltimore Oriole!
|"Are you still here? Go. Away!"|
Yeah. Moving right along ...
There were a few Double Crested Cormorants around. Here's one, doing his Loch Ness Monster impression:

Here's a tiny bird who held still just long enough for Mom to snap this shot through the trees:
He was small and flighty, but he stuck around longer than the Pileated Woodpecker and the Bald Eagle -- right, Mom? You couldn't even crank out a shot of either of ... oh. Sorry. Right. SERENE Scenery Sunday. Let's move on!
Mom was thrilled to see some Red-Headed Woodpeckers on dead tree! Here's one:
|"Hey! No Starlings allowed!"|
OK, that might not have been serene for the Starling.
Here's another Red-Head:
|"Oooh! A bug!!!"|
Mom almost walked right past this Coot hiding in the shadows at the water's edge, but Beth spotted him!
And this guy certainly spotted Mom and Beth!
Am I the only one who finds him a bit creepy?
Mom liked this guy almost silhouetted against the lighter background:
And last, but not least, here's a shot of a Canada Goose and her babies:

Happy Mothers Day to her - and to all the mothers out there! I hope it's a serene one for all of you!
