We had some rain last night--I don't know how much, but I was hoping it might be enough bring in some migrants to Mead Gardens, so this morning I got there early just to see what birds may have dropped by. I didn't stay long, since it seems I have to earn a living too. But I took a tour of the area, and it was a pretty slow morning. I did have one big highlight though. I found one Blue Grosbeak on the boardwalk. I think this is a female. The bird was pretty far away so I did the best I could.
It was also nice to see some House Finches, a few of which came close enough for photographs. I only saw one warbler--a Worm-eating Warbler flashed its head at me and then was gone.
There also were some rather ordinary species that nevertheless seemed rather photogeneic, so I shot a few photos of them as well.
Oh what beautiful LIGHT on the mocker's wings! Great captures ALL!!ReplyDelete
