Calm after the storm?

Morseville, IN

sunny 77 °F

After the intense Big Day yesterday, Jonathan and I both woke up feeling very groggy in the late morning today. After breakfast, though, we were ready for some very low-key birding in the woods outside the house in which we were staying.

I delighted in seeing this male YELLOW-THROATED WARBLER, apparently a commonality down here in this part of the state:



We heard a pair of duetting BARRED OWLS but were unfortunately unable to call them in with my vocal imitation like I did with the one in the state park the other night.

A male SCARLET TANAGER appeared to have a territory right over the house, and we were blessed with multiple opportunities to document this stunner, my bird-of-the-day for today.

Back to Chicago today. Good birding and stay tuned!

Hi Henry!

I LOVE your photos, and your knowledge of birds blows me away! I'm a friend of Judy Menhennett, one of your Oak Park birders, who told me about your blog. I was wondering what kind of lens do you use to get your wonderful captures?
