The following photos may not be the best, but I’m so happy to get a glimpse at these beautiful creatures, so I’ll keep them.

Yellow Warbler

I find it so difficult to get a good shot of warblers, because they seem to move so quickly, but for some reason this year, I’m not sure if I’ve gotten a bit better, or that the birds are moving a bit slower.

Now that I think of it, the birds may be moving a bit slower, because I had the male cardinal practically following me around about a week ago, and he seemed to be posing for pictures. They are usually pretty skittish and the female is more likely to be seen posing—so that was very unusual.

I was just about to leave the meadow when I heard his sweet call. I turned around and there he was, almost directly above my head. Perhaps he was saying; “Don’t go, please stay.” 😃

Halls Road Redstart

I headed down another trail to see the state of the lake, but on my way there I was greeted by this male downy woodpecker, or perhaps it’s the hairy woodpecker, I have a very hard time telling the difference.

Bay-breasted Warbler

I was quite surprised to come upon a tree filled with bay-breasted warblers. It took me a while just to get the few shots, but that I actually got them was still surprising. Warblers are very difficult bird to get photos of—at least for me.

I’m not quite sure what kind of a warbler the last one is—perhaps the female yellow warbler??IMG_2966 a copy.jpg

Just think, all these beautiful bird with all their different characteristics, God created them.

I know all the birds of the mountains, And the wild beasts of the field are Mine. Psalm 50:11

  1. It would be awesome to live in the wood, out in the open while listening to the beautiful singing of the birds.
