My favorite bird of the day was hands down this gorgeous Merlin! Not really a lifer per say but I never listed it as I only got a brief glimpse of it at Plum Island a couple of weeks ago. It is on my list now though!! This bird is part of the falcon family and you all know my deep fondness of falcons.
Such a gorgeous bird that I could have gawked at all day!
A lousy photo of a Red-necked Grebe. LIFER!! Very nice bird but I do wish it would have gotten a little bit closer for a better look at it.
A photo of one of my favorite birds for the month of May which is the Blue-gray Gnatcather. Such an adorable little bird and a real treat to see again considering there are not that many of them here in Central Massachusetts.
I also saw a lot of other birds including the Least Flycather. LIFER!! I think I have a photo of it in my collection but it is so lousy I have sent it to someone for verification. HA! Birding is getting tough now which is making photography even more challenging. Now I know what people mean by Warbler neck!
Anyhow, just a quick post. I am very tired which is rare for someone as hyper as me. Its time for me to relax a little and get ready for the crazy work week that awaits me.
Peace all and get out there and bird!
