Ovenbird at Central Winds Park, 9/5/2012

It's a conspiracy, I'm now convinced.  This morning at Central Winds Park, I heard some nice activity  in one of the more heavily wooded areas near the lake.  I'm somewhat leery of this area because the mosquitoes are particularly fierce there.  But I heard the sounds, and decided to venture into the area.  As I walked down the path, I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of mosquitoes. I wasn't being bitten at all!  But then I saw one of the birds I was hoping to find this morning--an Ovenbird.  It was beautiful.  It was active.  I found it perched up in a tree for me rather than hiding under bushes.  I lifted my camera, and I was immediately swarmed by mosquitoes.  They were everywhere, biting my arms and hands, buzzing in my ears, making a general nuisance of themselves.

And then it hit me.  This was all part of the plan.  They were using this magnificent Ovenbird as a lure to bring me into their clutches.  And then when I was hooked by the beautiful bait they dangled in front of me, they feasted.  Well, they may have succeeded in luring me in, but I got the photos, so I still feel like the fish that got away with the bait.
