Blue-gray Gnatcatchers (Polioptila caerulea), 7/16/05
|This bird suddenly landed on the ground, flopped about briefly, then quickly disappeared into the bushes. Jeff Pippen suggested that this bird might be "dust-bathing," trying to rid itself of parasites.||Meanwhile, on a neighboring tree, this bird was wildly hopping around.|
Juvenile Little Blue Heron (at north Durham swamp on 7/16/05, thanks to Dan Kaplan of Durham)
Unlike egrets, this species does not have an orange bill. In contrast this bird has a pinkish-gray and black bill.
