Default The migrants are here

It was a great birding morning and we saw a lot of birds. Several hundred Grackles flew overhead and I tried to capture this event.

Today I saw more of the White-throated Sparrow than ever before. Several times I thought there was a hunter walking in the woods nearby. I moved to another spot and saw many more of the WTS jumping on leaves and tossing them looking for bugs. The last shot is my attempt to capture this foraging.

Nice Gil. They can hide but you'll still capture them. I haven't seen any Robins in a while.
