Scarlet Tanager traveling through after wintering in the south.
The songbirds are traveling through Northern Virginia for the next couple of weeks. This is a black throated blue warbler.
Leucistic white throated sparrow. I think kind of rare.
Viola sororia is a plant that is pretty to see and delicious in salads and sandwiches.
Found Cardamine concatenata right on the dog path today. While the plant is supposed to have a nice, peppery taste the amount of dogs on the trail means it is likely this plant would be sprinkled with dog urine, which is a flavoring agent i tend to avoid.
doing whatever it is you do in Monticello
You guessed it, itâs me I declare you all to follow me. (Itâs not like I wasnât the 3rd president anything). Have a good day. WHAT EVER YOU DO DO NOT TRUST JOHN LOCKE!!ðªð¤ðð¤

Finally a day with no âï¸
Now that it has been warming up quite a bit, Iâve been seeing not only squirrels but chipmunks as well. Saw this guy the last time I walked through Monticello Park. I love how this Panasonic Leica 200mm allows me to not only capture animals from far away but also generate beautiful bokeh, definitely one of my favorite lenses on the MFT system. I canât wait to use it down in Florida in the next few weeks. . . . . . . . . #chipmunk #alexandria #virginia #wildlife #wildlifephotography #animalphotography #naturephotography #nature #microfourthirdsgallery #microfournerds #bokeh #animal_captures #GX8 #lumix #leica #leica200mm

Lived in my condo for 4 years...only today discovered that this lovely, hidden away park was less than a mile away. Smokey and I decided to take advantage of the nice weather and take a long walk there and back!
Today I am a birder from my desk.
Two years ago today. Very proud mama.
Spring is here and there are so many birds out and about! I thought it was awesome seeing this white-breasted nuthatch who seemed to be foraging for seeds and food at the base of several trees at the park I visited. Thanks to @erinhime for helping my identify this bird! #bird #whitebreastednuthatch #nuthatch #birdsofinstagram #wildlife #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #nature #alexandria #virginia
Photo of an easter phoebe. I noticed this bird in the trees because it was very active and loudly making calls that sounded like âphoebe!â Thanks to @miraxterrik for helping me identify it! #easternphoebe #bird #birdsofinstagram #wildlife #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #nature #brownbird #alexandria #virginia
