Catbird

Catbird

Gray Catbird

Well, the leaves are changing and summer is almost over. The catbird will spend the winter in Costa Rica and we are left in New Jersey.

Yellow Warbler

Yellow Warbler This morning it was very calm out in the boat and we lingered in one spot for a while where we always hear but don't see the birds. Finally today we spotted the little warbler. Mike took two pictures and thought he got him in one. When we got home and went through all the pictures, we almost deleted this one at first since the bird blends in so closely with the leaves. We took a more careful look and both laughed when we realized it wasn't just a picture of leaves after all.

Great Egret Fishing

Great Egret

We went out at dusk and watched an egret fishing for about 20 minutes and took about 100 photos. Here's one of the best. He didn't catch a fish while we were there. There were several kingfishers around, but they refused to be photographed again. We'll try again tomorrow.

Red Bellied Woodpecker

This woodpecker was so noisy today while we were looking at the warbler, it seemed like it was just demanding that its photo be taken also.

An infrequent but oh so delightful visitor is the black and white warbler. Maybe they are here more often, though, and we just don't see them because they dart around very quickly. They don't come to any of the feeders but appear to be getting insects from all the nooks and crannies in the trees.

I saw these yesterday in my backyard for the first time. I was curious about what they were and found your site. Thanks for the info. I am in Towaco.
