May brings us birds
Today was a great day for new birdies and I ended up with 5 first for 2008’s (without trying). My first bird was a Hooded Warbler (CHECK) who was up bright and early this morning. Then I found a Magnolia Warbler (CHECK) who was hopping around the hemlocks. Over on Quaker Lake, I don’t think I could have gotten any closer to this Eastern Kingbird (CHECK). . . . I had to back up some for the camera to focus!! I thoroughly enjoyed watching the Kingbird hunting for insects in the grass and just ignoring the photographer!
Then while photographing this Broad-winged Hawk along the roadside. . . I could hear “teacher, Teacher, TEACHER. . . ” my first Ovenbird (CHECK) for 2008! Days like today are exactly what I live for!
