This crow was preening for quite awhile before it decided to just lay down on the wires. I don't recall ever seeing such a stellar lounge position by a crow.
This past Sunday morning I participated in another Audubon Society Birdathon with Whittemore's Whatzits at Steigerwald Lake NWR. American Bitterns are often the most entertaining birds there and they did not disappoint us...
We saw some other good birds and turtles but I didn't get many good photos. Lucky for you, Michele did, so go check hers out here.
Yesterday morning I birded Mount Tabor and was happy to run into Sarah and Max first thing. I was able to see many FOY's there including Cassin's Vireo, Western Tanager, Chipping Sparrow, Lazuli Bunting, and.... a Hammond's Flycatcher. What? Did I really ID an empid? Oh hell no, but they did. No photos from yesterday worth sharing unfortunately.
This morning's dog walk was pretty fun... The best birds were all higher elevation birds, slumming it at approximately 23 feet above sea level.
