Recent Sightings, Including a Hummingbird

I have been collecting photographs of other birds during this Warbler migration season. This a Swainson’s Thrush. Like all Thrushes except the familiar American Robin, they tend to be pretty secretive. This one was deep inside a thicket.

Another bird that tends to be in deeply wooded areas is the Veery. I could hear this one singing and spent quite a while following the sound until I could spot him.

This Field Sparrow, on the other hand, was sitting out in open.

This House Wren was in plain view as well. These birds will be quieter and more discrete once they start nesting.

I was scanning the shrubs and trees for foraging birds when a tiny bit of motion caught my eye. I was quick enough to catch this male Ruby-throated Hummingbird buzzing around in the shrubbery while looking for flowers and small insects. The light was at the right angle to show the ruby color in his throat feathers. My recent Hummingbird photos were taken at a feeder. These are “in the wild”.

Coming next…at the shore.
