Tufted Titmouse

Monday, December 10, 2018,

This is a Tufted Titmouse. Usually, when I post two pics in a single post, I try to find something humorous or intelligent to say to act as a sort of filler between the two photographs. I really don’t have much to say about these pics today. I’m sorry to let you folks down but, gosh, isn’t this bird amazingly photogenic? There have been plenty of times in the past when I only post a single photo of a bird just because I couldn’t come up with some witty banter. It is often much easier to take a photograph than it is to write about said photograph. But look, how could I choose between these two pics? This is a Tufted Titmouse and, by golly, it’s cute in both photos. JK


Palm Warbler

Tuesday, November 13, 2018,

This is a Palm Warbler that I encountered at Frank Melville Park last month. Warblers have been migrating through here on their way south. This bird was staying low to the ground, searching for insects. It was zooming around, sometimes visiting small bushes but mostly zipping around patches of grass. I took lots of photographs but this bird was not staying very still anywhere it went. These are two of only three pics that were in good focus. I did, however, manage to get several great shots of empty grassy areas. Unfortunately, shots like that don’t generate much interest amongst nature lovers. Sigh. JK
