Just enjoying being outside!
An older photo of a Blue-headed Vireo that I took in 2006
Some days you find yourself not wanting to pull the camera out of your backpack or even picking up your binoculars. Today was one of those days where I just wanted to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. I started after work exploring my new bird banding site and checking out how much damage the Beavers have done. I think my changes that I need to do will be better in the long run (as long as the beaver doesn’t expand its range)! I then headed over to France Brook area of the park where I typically find Blue-headed Vireos and Louisiana Waterthrush. They still have not arrived but I am anticipating one of the two species to arrive sometime this weekend. I have been looking but not located any Eastern Phoebes anywhere since I took that photo of the one eating the worm on the road. While out along France Brook, I had heard a deew deew deew!! Deew Deew Deew!! This was worth the binoculars going up! Greater Yellowlegs just few over my head!! CHECK, first for 2007! Getting ready for my slide program that I am doing for the Cattaraugus County Bird Club tomorrow! Enjoy the weekend, its going to be a nice one!!
