Juvenile Activity

Northern Mockingbird coming in for landing in a juvenile observing it

It is Tuesday, Doug and I went out for our morning of birding. We visited both Daniel Webster Audubon Sanctuary and BurragePond Wildlife Management Area, and for birding the pickings were slim. At Daniel Webster, there was one area where there was activity. There were multiple species including Cedar waxwing, Northern Mockingbird, Common Phoebe just to name a few. The interesting finding was that there was some juvenile Cedar Waxwing and Northern Mockingbird present and they were feeding on the various insects that were flying around the top of the tree.
