The weather was so nice on Sunday that I had to take advantage and enjoy nature somehow. I decided on the nearby refuge since it's a quick and easy trip, and I hadn't been yet this year. Previous photos from the same place are here and here.
There were lots of these.
Down in the swampy area under the rail trail.
This is some sort of Flycatcher, I think--possibly Hammonds? The pictures of various Flycatchers look really similar.
My favorite sighting of the day was this snake in the swamp. I had prayed I might get to take a picture of something interesting that I hadn't encountered there before, and I got it!
Later I saw another snake, but he crawled under the bushes too quickly for me to get pictures.
