Here are Tom Carey’s images of life at Smithfield Oaks Preserver, maintained by Polk County Soil & Water Conservation District. We were there on a scouting trip last week. Click on image to enlarge.

Birds, from upper left: male junco; male American goldfinch, color already fading; Lazuli Bunting up and far away; two pewee shots, one in flight; two Purple Finch images–they loved those serviceberries; White-crowned Sparrow adult; likely juvie, not female, Common Yellowthroat. Upper right flower is a brodeia.
