The first morning on the ranch brought us an amazing sunrise and an outstanding day to be out looking for lifers! I didn’t know what to expect and found myself trying to carefully analyze each bird encounter. Are those House Finch really House Finch?? . . . . . then using my field guide and iPhone app . . . what other options could this bird be??
I hadn’t moved too far from our bunker and this Carolina Wren appeared to be approaching me looking for lifers . . . . . “Look English Sparrow, it is a New Yorker!!” Seriously, the Carolina Wren in Western New York look at you and b-line into thicker vegetation. I saw some potential in a few good pictures with this birdy!
I pished a few times and the Carolina Wren hopped over to the fence. Looked around for a few minutes (as my camera was going click click click) and few into the tree looking for insects!
No idea what it was looking for but I enjoyed watching this cute little wren.
They are tiny and moved very fast through the trees! It fluttered around for about 10 minutes and then disappeared as quickly as it arrived.
I have never had an opportunity to get such good pictures of a Carolina Bewick’s Wren as I did the first morning on the Ranch in Texas! I had only been looking for birds for my first hour and I can’t wait to show you all of the other birds I saw that day . . . . but I am going to milk these post!! SORRY!
