Default Summer Birds

Just a few sample shots from the MANY bird photos taken this past summer here in Northeast Tennessee…
This Juvenile Cedar Waxwing was spotted in the home park's campground, and was nice enough to pose for a quick snapshot.

Ripe mulberries are a bird "magnet" for many species. Here's a shot of an adult Cedar Waxwing in the midst of snacking…

Our Catbirds are very shy, but the tasty mulberries made this one a bit more approachable.

Eastern Kingbirds don't eat mulberries, but they sure are wonderful insect predators. This one was picking "bugs" off the mimosa-tree flowers.

And here's one that was perched nearby, waiting to snatch a small insect in flight.

It's been a great summer for Great Blue Herons. This one has quite a catch!

Juncos spend the winter at the lower elevations, and migrate up into the mountains for the summer. Here's one on Roan Mountain, amidst the Bluet flowers.

Hope you enjoyed the feathered friends, and that you will be able to "park & recreate" here in the Great Tennessee Outdoors soon!
