Turned out to be a rainy morning. We didn’t find very many birds but the light was lovely.
Last Friday we went to Pelham Bay Park, Bronx, New York in the afternoon and had a 3 mile hike around Hunter Island. The views are lovely, but it was hot and buggy. After that we drove to the Lobster Shack on City Island to buy a take out. While parked off the road in a driveway a crew cab pickup truck scraped the paint off the edge of our side mirror. The list of mishaps grows long for our little VW Jetta “James”. We’ve only had it a couple of months.

After an unsuccessful attempt at house hunting in NJ on Friday. We went to E. B. Forsythe NWR in the afternoon. It was a rainy and very buggy. The little specks in the mud are all the shorebirds. Details in next post.
It was a lovely day after a hard rain in the morning which helped cool things off. Marc, Paula and I had a leisurely walk through the grounds of Planting Fields Arboretum admiring the flowers and trees.
