I saw this white flower and Eastern Kingbird during my three-mile hike. It rained, and I had to take cover.
But after the rains cleared, it was cool and windy, the sun tucked behind clouds, a perfect morning for a hike. And the birds were certainly out. Dozens of Yellow-rumped Warblers were singing even as the rain came down. A hunting Red-shouldered hawk swooped low over the marsh, drifting in the wind, even appearing to fly backyards at one point. And this Eastern Kingbird, photographed above, caught a small worm from the grass. I guess it was breakfast time.
