A profile of a Rose-breasted Grosbeak. This photo was taken on August 26, 2020 in Springer Park. These birds build rather flimsy nests that eggs are often seen from below through the nest bottom.


Sunlit Asters in late summer/early fall. This photo was taken on September 20, 2020 in Springer Park. Blooming in late summer to late fall, these flowers are a food source for many insects, birds and mammals.


A female Cardinal giving me a curious look. This photo was taken on August 6, 2020 near Springer Park. Not many female North American songbirds sing, but female Cardinals do, often while sitting on the nest. https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Northern_Cardinal/overview
