On the Road is a weekday feature spotlighting reader photo submissions. From the exotic to the familiar, whether you’re traveling or in your own backyard, we would love to see the world through your eyes.
On the Road will continue, but it will be forever Alain’s.
This is the final On the Road post of frosty’s Coronavirus Road Trip. Thank you, frosty, for sharing your trip with us!
Hey, On the Road Virgins who have never submitted to On the Road before… Yes, you! I’d like to have another Virgin’s week in August, so please think about submitting a set of photos to OTR.
Also, we have a last-minute addition for After Dark on Friday night – pictures of the John Lewis Funeral Procession in DC and the Black Lives Matter Plaza. ~WaterGirl
And now, back to frosty and some very lovely birds!
Fool Hollow and Lyman Lake were the two state parks where I did a lot of sitting outside the trailer (reading Balloon Juice obsessively) with my camera at the ready. These are some of the more colorful birds that came by.
Bullock’s Oriole (M). I was so glad this one came by and perched in front of me. I’d seen 2 or 3 at Fool Hollow but never got my camera up in time.
Bullock’s Oriole (F). She was in a shrub just to the left of where I was sitting outside the trailer.
Violet-Green Swallow. There was a birdhouse hanging close to us that the swallows were using. I love this one, at a certain angle he looks like the Penguin from Batman
Mountain Bluebird (M). He was sitting on a road sign some distance away and I had the camera set up for multiple shots. This was the best one.

Indigo Bunting. These were taken through the window of the trailer as we were eastbound. I’ve always liked these birds, but never saw one before. There was a flock of four or more.
