These spectacular photographs by Mike Bailey exemplify what is so unique about the Preserve: a natural area in an urban setting that abounds with a diversity of delights for its visitors. The Preserve is a favorite of area birders and photographers. Enjoy these photographs of a Baltimore Oriole near the community gardens, just after it launched from a perch, carrying food, and probably on the way back to a nest with young; the Prothonotary warbler at the Picnic Point Pond marsh; a pair of red-bellied Woodpeckers working on a huge dead tree in Bill's Woods, and a curious Yellow Warbler looking backward at Mike's camera. Thank you, Mike, for sharing these photographs with the Friends.
