Today was a very hot day on the Flatwoods Park Bluebird Trail, but the birds are still active and we saw several BB adults flying with their young.

We saw a couple of birds that we don't ordinarily see-- Little Blue Heron (calico phase between immature white and adult blue), and a Yellow-shafted Northern Flicker. In addition we saw a Ruby-throated Hummingbird, Red-bellied and Pileated Woodpeckers, a White-eyed Vireo, Mourning and Ground Doves, Black and Turkey Vultures, a Red-Shouldered Hawk, a male Bobwhite with 2 chicks, an Anhinga, Great Crested Flycatchers, a Blue Jay, a Carolina Wren, Eastern Towhee, a Northern Parula, and Northern cardinals. We also saw a Gopher Tortoise.

The Tarflowers (Bejaria racemosa) are still blooming, and the Goldenrod (Solidago tortifolia) are beginning to bloom. (Pictures of highlighted wildlife and plants are in the attachment)
