Eastern Wood Pewee


This bird often sallied out and back to the same perch on a wooded hillside overlooking a 20' wide creek. It was so focused on it's activities it seemed not to notice my tripod rattling attempts to photograph it through branches and leaves. Suddenly, it appeared at the top of dead tree 15' away. It ignored the sound of the shutter as it sallied and returned twice before flying off.
