Sunday Shots, 07/12/20

The weekend wasn’t very exciting compared to Friday. I went to the Hudson River early on Saturday morning and met up with Bruce Nott and then Karen Miller joined us a little later. Bruce and I had 3 distant Caspian Terns and the three of us had another unidentifiable distant tern after that. This morning I went to Goosepond Mountain SP to do some atlasing. I did well and confirmed 4 additional species (Baltimore Oriole, Tufted Titmouse, Red-bellied Woodpecker, and one that really made my day – Blue-winged Warbler). I have had rotten luck with photos at that place. I was close to having several opportunities with Blue-winged Warbler and Worm-eating Warbler, but the birds, while close, just never showed well. Anyways, here are some shots from the week.

~I am a fan of photos where somehow the camera gets the subject in focus through whatever is in the foreground. Indigo Bunting female at Goosepond Mountain, 07/12/20.~

  1. I am in North Carolina yet. Had a few good days birding Tues . I had Loggerhead shrike, and Brown Headed nuthatch. Yesterday I drove down to Croatan Nat. Forest and got bobwhite, red cockaded woodpecker and my life Bachmans sparrow. May stop at the Dismal swamp on my way back in an attempt to get Swainsons warbler. Thanks again for your post.

    1. Bruce – thanks as always for checking in. I’ve been away in Maine, so finally taking a look at this now; you’ve done well in North Carolina, no doubt about it. Matt
