Birds of Appleton Farms: A Few Pictures

Mallards are pretty common in the sloughs and small ponds of Appleton Farms, as they are throughout much of the country.  I often see them flying over our fields as well.
Savannah sparrows make as much use of our fields as we do.  I often scare up a bunch of them rooting around in the weeds or furrows, at which point they often fly back to a small brushy area that surrounds an old foundation to perch and give the alarm.
Mockingbirds are conspicuous, aggressive and vocal residents, particularly around the habited parts of Appleton.
Red-tailed Hawks are a frequent and exciting sight in the skies, particularly over the Great Pasture, where one can often see two or three at a time.
I was lucky to get this shot!  It is often hard to get my binoculars on Pine Warblers, let alone my camera.  They are one of the more common warblers during migration, but choose to spend much of their time at the tops of pine trees.  This one came downstairs for a few minutes to say hello.
Bluebirds are almost always within sight, often standing at the top of a fencepost or another similarly conspicuous spot.  I enjoy their musical, conversational song.
Chipping sparrows are our most visible (and audible) sparrow, enjoying the open fields and lawns all over Appleton.
Glossy Ibis are an occasional treat, usually seen flying over our fields on their way from one marshy field to another.  They have a very distinctive silhouette in flight that is pretty much unmistakable.  This is the least common bird on our property that I have been able to get a picture of.

These pictures do not represent the most interesting, most photogenic, most distinctive or even most common birds of Appleton Farms, but just the ones that I have been able to get a usable picture of.  I will talk more at some other time about the birdlife of Appleton in a more meaningful context, but I thought people might enjoy a couple of pictures in the meantime.
