From the 18th

I do believe the hummers have finally left town. I've still got images to post. Happy memories that have to last till next August.

In the back garden, an ovenbird.


From the 21st

The starting point was at Falconer's Rock. There's always something to see there because of the bugs and berries. Oh joy, the grosbeak.

Berry licking good.

Back over to the jewelweed patch for a dose of magic.

Back here, sassy sparrow.

Winding down for hummers

I don't care what I see as long as I see something. The magnolia warbler.

Hummer season is winding down, jewelweed starting to wither. I've got a backlog of hummer images and will post them over the next few days.

A surprise in the brush, the female black-throated blue warbler not half as frenetic as a hummer.

Right on the path at my feet. Never noticed human. Of course not,- bugs first, worry about human secondary.

a thrush, or a veery?


Surprise, a Nashville warbler

Another short walk

Not much time, but enough to be surprised. Hummer not at jewelweed.

Ovenbird going food hunting too.

Black and white warbler with food.

Young catbird watching flies from perch. I waited.

A fly flew right by its face. This happened very fast, lunge.

Got it!
Upside down lunch.

Abstract in the bushes.
