I left the office about 4 p.m. today
(Monday) to check out the Bobolinks that Edge had reported on Creekland
Road, just north of Columbia. Thanks, Edge. Here are a
About 5 p.m., I headed for Eagle
Bluffs. Yellow-Billed Cuckoos were out in force. Didn't
see or hear any over the weekend, but this evening saw and heard no fewer than
six. Took a couple photos, but missed the shot of the day.
Just as I was focusing on a Cuckoo, it hopped down and grabbed a frog by the
leg. Before I could take the shot, the frog was gone.
I walked back toward the river looking for warblers
and found Yellow Warblers, a Blackpoll Warbler, a Gray Catbird, and many
American Redstarts. It's very hard to take digiscope photos of warblers,
but did manage this one shot of a Redstart.
Finally, hear a couple photos that I've finished
downloading from the last few days of birding, including a grumpy Barn Swallow
and a cheerful Grasshopper Sparrow.
