It has been one of those days that started early and just kept on going. By the time I got out for a photowalk, the afternoon light was waning, but the birds were still active. I headed for the bluebird nesting boxes first; both mom and pop bluebirds were there, and perched nearby was a tree swallow, so I added his picture to my collection for the day.
Walking on, I headed past the bog, where I spotted flashes of bright yellow. Click, click, click! I captured several colorful birds, but at first I wasn’t quite sure what they were.
…until this handsome dude showed up on the scene…
…and I exclaimed, “Oh! Orioles! Both the male and female.”
Then they discovered each other, and I quickly captured the surprising interaction with my camera!
Gotta love witnessing that interaction, but the walk wasn’t over yet. On the way back to my car, I saw a downy woodpecker…
…a singing cardinal,
…and a very shy mystery warbler who was hiding in the underbrush.
And that was the end of the evening and the very productive walk in the park. If you liked it as much as I did, feel free to comment. I would love to know if you had a favorite picture.
Thanks for stopping by today!
