We viewed several beautiful examples of Yellow Warblers both on the path and at the soccer field a bit later. The composite below consists of some of the Yellow Warbler images I took. I really overdid it as I wanted to make certain to get some keepers although
the image base was smaller than I would wish for due to the shooting distance. These birds are not large subjects by any means...
Another bird that was spotted on several occasions on the walk was the Pine Warbler. The composite below is from the various sightings.
As we investigated activity at the soccer field a Merlin and a Cooper’s Hawk were spotted. The Cooper’s was way up nearly directly overhead – I sighted the best I could with my handheld
camera/400mm lens and got off several exposures as noted below…
We also viewed the ‘usual suspects’ throughout the day… Several composites of images I took can be found below...
Last, but far from least was a new bird to add to my website Bird Images Index - a Blue-headed Vireo as viewed in these last two graphics...
It had been an active morning at Evergreen Cemetery with many people coming around at all levels of interest. I really didn’t know anybody in particular,
but this isn’t an issue on these forays and I was beginning to see familiar faces from earlier in the week at Hinckley. I asked Bob, an Audubon staff member,
if he or someone kept a sightings list and would post it. He indicated this would be done; as I didn’t take any notes, this list will be referenced
here once the information becomes available to me. As always, thanks are due Bob and the other Audubon staff and members for their generosity
in time and sharing of knowledge on these outings.
I’m looking forward to tomorrow morning to start the process all over again…
