Well the good birding continues. I was out today still searching for the Black headed blue warbler (who seems to have moved on by the way Mr. Thick skull) when I noticed that the American Robins were furiously stuffing themselves full of Poison Ivy berries. As I was watching them a little bird popped in and I snapped a few pics before taking a look at him with my binocs. I initially thought it was an Ovenbird but then I realized that he was a little too red. I confirmed this when I looked at the quick pic I snapped of the back of the bird.
I stayed in the same spot for a while watching the Robins and I also had a few Yellow Rumped Warbler zooming around chasing insects. I tried taking a few pics but sadly this was the best of the bunch….
Interestingly Warblers also love Poison Ivy berries which I didn’t know and none of the Warblers ventured close to the Ivy berries. While I was watching the Warbler the Thrush popped back in and landed for a perfect quick photo op. For once my SLOW lens was able to capture the moment.
I was left with a warm and fuzzy feeling although I did miss a pretty decent photo op with a Pine Warbler earlier in the day. Oh well, that’s what tomorrow is for…..
