Prairie Warbler at Governor Bridge Natural Area

Perfect weather doesn’t make for perfect birding, but I can’t really complain after yesterday’s bonanza.
I didn’t see yesterday’s variety, even though I’m sure they are there. The Prairie was the last bird I saw, and a few other shots came out well, so I’ll settle for what I got.

This Prairie Warbler was in deep shadow, and I was able to rescue the image because my friend Emily gave me some wonderful software. Thanks again, Emily!

Indigo Bunting

The female Indigo Bunting isn’t as striking as her mate, but the dull colors serve her well.

Hummingbird Clearwing

Another try at the Hummingbird Clearwing. I’m going to take Graeme’s advice and shoot these with my Nikkor in the future.

Flycatcher

This Flycatcher is probably an Eastern Phoebe.

Laughing Gull

This appears to be a flock of Laughing Gulls.

Caterpillar Nest

This Caterpillar Nest caught my eye.

Carolina Wren

The background colors make this image of a Carolina Wren more interesting.

Chickadee

This may be a Black Capped Chickadee, but I’m not sure yet.

Blue Gray Gnatcatcher

Blue Gray Gnatcatchers are still feeding in very large numbers.
