There’s no longer any doubt about it, it’s birding season! The first batch of migrants are already back in the area and each week will continue to bring more. I had several days off for the Easter weekend and was able to make repeated trips into the field, which have been some of my most productive and successful ever. Coming from a long, and photographically dismal winter, I can’t even begin to describe how good it feels to be back out with the camera making good captures.
Like riding a bike, the old skills come back pretty quick – although the first day, I’ll admit that I was swinging the lens around a little wildly, and having a hell of at time finding a bird in flight, much less tracking it. But even so, the species list for each day was high, which for me is half the fun. But enough talk – photos after the break:
More to come!
