Scarlet Tanager at Governor Bridge Natural Area.

I got a late start this morning, for no good reason at all, but I still managed to snap the first picture by 7:20.
I spent some more time trying for the hummingbird, with modest success, but the real highlight was a Scarlet Tanager, a bird that has eluded me for over a year.

This pair of Indigo Buntings was foraging in the same tree as the Tanagers.

I’m getting a little better at capturing these Ruby Throated Hummingbirds in flight, but it’s difficult.

Even at rest it’s not easy to get these birds right.

The Common Yellowthroat likes the mimosa tree as much as the hummingbird does.
