Seeing The American Redstart Saturday Night At The Celery Bog
I had a pretty good morning Saturday at the Celery Bog, but I thought that I would go back at night to see what I could see. It is the migration season after all, and you never know what you are going to find. I spent the first hour or so not far from my car. It seemed like everything came to say hi to me. The real star of the night as far as posing goes had to be this american redstart. It gave us a few looks before flying away.
The Scarlet Tanager
This is a bird that I have been wanting to run into lately. It just didn’t happen. I had a few good looks at this one, and it would have probably been the bird of the day, but I had a good run in Sunday morning with one so it will get that blog post all for itself. I had a couple of tight photos of the bird, but I liked this wider look a little more.
The Yellow Warbler
I had one great encounter with a yellow warbler this spring. Since then I have not been able to get close to one. I guess that it is greed to want too many more, but you know how it is. You always want to improve on your photos. This one was close enough to do something interesting with it anyway. Maybe I have one more good encounter left this spring.
The Chestnut-sided Warbler
This was the last warbler that I saw in the morning, and the first warbler that I saw at night. This is a bird that I don’t see often so it was cool seeing it multiple times in one day.
