Things I've Seen Lately
FOY Yellow-rumped Warbler (Butterbutt). I called him in closer, but he wasn't very cooperative. Oh well, FOY's are for documentation. Hopefully the "good" shots are to come later!
Brown creeper. Cute lil guy, but always in the shadows!
FOY Hermit Thrush. He was with 3 others, but they were camera shy.
FOY Eastern Towhee. He called quite a bit before we saw him. He was right in front of our eyes. I hate that. All this time I could have gotten a possibly better angle. He flew off just after this shot.
Eastern Bluebird Female- The male wasn't so cooperative. They are now in a battle with the Tree Swallows for nest box rights. The swallows always win. They have the numbers to chase them out. I hate that though, they dominate all of the boxes!
Ring-necked Pheasant- First flight shot...Ever!
Blue-winged Teals-Last week at a nice pond, as most of you know, Teals are very flighty!
FOY Eastern Phoebe- I got this one while in Chicago a couple of weeks ago, shooting the wood ducks.
