Gazillions of Cool birds at Governor Bridge Natural Area.

Wow! It was another of those rare days when I didn’t know which way to look or which bird to watch. A few migrants were visible, and lots of dispersing birds were feeding in the brush. The Cuckoo was a nice find, as they are somewhat secretive and seldom pose so well. I also played with a couple of other lenses, trying to get some hummingbirds and insects.
