Carolina Wren

    The chill nights seem to have chased the migrants south. If it wasn't for this fellow, I would have gone home empty handed. However, I was hoping to shoot a Carolina wren today and was rewarded within the first thirty minutes. The remaining hours I count as exercise.

      Sweet pose, about ready to take flight.

      If I declare I want to shoot a black-capped chickadee, I'm sure to meet my goal. On Thursday I chased reports of a boreal chickadee and missed. Instead, I had to suppress a giggle as I along with eight other birders stared at a tuft of grass on the border of a beach, intently waiting for a Leconte's sparrow to show. We did eventually see it, but I captured only a few feathers and a butt shot. I'm still weighing whether I am a "birder" or not.

      Excellent shot Kelly. At least you got this photo. It is now Hawk season and there are many in the area. That's probably why you didn't see any birds around. When there are hawks most birds will hide in bushes and shrubs and will stay there until they're gone. You just have to wait. I hope you have a great Sunday and hopefully you'll have better luck today. Good luck to you!!

      a very enticing capture, Kelly; once again, it's that straight trademark tail I luv!
