Dear Friends,
      It's been awhile since I've had the chance  to download pics from my 
camera, so here are a few interesting shots from  the last six weeks or so.  
These are taken by digiscope.   If you  have trouble downloading, or if you 
wish to see some other recent photos, go to  _www.pbase.com/mobish_ 
(http://www.pbase.com/mobish)  and click on New  Photos, and scroll down to most 
recent.  Enjoy.
 
Here's a cooperative Scarlet Tanager from Rock Bridge State Park,  Columbia:

An ambitious and hungry Great Blue Heron.  I have many more photos of  the 
30-minute process of eating this huge fish, and may post some later.

My favorites, the Cuckoos.  I've been privileged to see three  
Black-Billed's this season at Rock Bridge SP and Eagle Bluffs, but have gotten  no good 
photos. However, here are some Yellow-Billed cousins:
