Melanistic. Acorn in mouth.
Gathering spider silk, maybe? She was very interested in the underside of this fence ledge.
One of many clumps on a big Flowering Pear (street tree).
Pair eating Swiss chard.
With an acorn.
What is this thing? It's been calling most nights. I've listened to every nighthawk, nightjar, and owl in range on allaboutbirds.org, and none of them sound like this.
Calls at about 7 seconds, 19, and 33. The last second is loud from my hand on the button, sorry.
Been seeing a few of these recently.
"Speckled Egg." Been in bloom for about a week.
