Posted on October 2, 2014 1 Comment
I had a sweet Prairie Warbler in the yard yesterday who interacted with me quite playfully. He even hovered in front of me for a second, checking out my camera. He was too close for my long lens at that moment, but I still appreciated the gesture. 😉 You can click on the images to […]

This past weekend I headed out to Tall Cypress to see what fall migrants I could find. Saw a couple of Baltimore Orioles and a Worm-eating Warbler, but that was about it. My own backyard was buzzing when I got home though. I had a Cliff Swallow in a flock of Barn Swallows that flew […]
