Been getting out as much as i can lately, which i admit is not as much as i would prefer but what can you do eh, bills need to be paid and such.
Was at my stomping ground (Maplewood) on Friday and happened upon a species that i have never seen there before, Common Yellowthroat.
I see them all over the place this time or year, just never there before, kinda neat
Post this shot of a Ruby-crowned Kinglet since it sure felt like a kinglet fallout day on Friday, the place was crawling with them
Also spent some time recently working the Rufous hummers, one of my favourite spring rituals.
This morning we drove out to a rainy place called Hope and spent some time working the Mountain Bluebirds, conditions were rough though, wind and rain led to some shaky shots
First though a Say's Phoebe wishing us a good morning
Saw about 5 or 6 of these blue birds, keep missing them at Maplewood and Hope is closer than the usual spot i get them, Kelowna.
Looks were of the long-range variety.
Thanks fer looking
