The pictures in this post were taken during the Roger Tory Peterson Institute’s Birding Festival held in Jamestown, NY from June 10-13. It was a really fun event with some great fields trips and leaders. The Swamp Sparrow pictures were taken at the Jamestown Audubon Society site south of Jamestown. I love to catch the little guys throwing their heads back and singing their hearts out.

The Eastern Phoebe photos were also taken at the Jamestown Audubon site. A pair of phoebes were very actively hunting insects around the visitor center and I’m sure they had a nest nearby.

This flycatcher was seen in a brushy area of an abandoned field near Falconer. I’m not sure which species it is. It was not flicking its tail and it didn’t call, but gave us a fairly long look (as these things go).
