Not a bird, but when I was chasing down the Pileated Woodpecker, I came across this very sleepy squirrel and had to take a photo.
This was right around noon, so I’m guessing he had a big lunch…
I also found this male and female Eastern Bluebird pair hanging around by a nest near the river.
I have no idea if it’s accurate, but in my head they are a breeding pair guarding or establishing a nesting location (though maybe they tried it out in college and it didn’t work out, so now they’re “just friends”).
Looks like the birds got the message that it’s spring! It seems these red-winged blackbirds are back and in full breeding plumage.
