This posting is basically me rambling on about the last week or two. Its been a rough couple of weeks for me. I'm still sick! But, I have gone out on occasion for a short drive to Lakeview Marina or a quick trip to the county. I've even gone out to PPNP and returned not having seen much.
Yesterday (Friday) I saw my first (for the year) Red Winged Blackbird in Amherstburg. I took some photos but none came out worth posting. A quick walk around Holiday Beach was very quiet... Robins, Red tailed Hawk and BCC's are pretty well all I saw.
The waterfowl density on the Detroit River is thinning out along with the excitement of January rarities. A recent visit to east Windsor gave views of a little brown animal (Raccoon) along with 9 or so Great blue Herons.

|I wonder if I'm the first person to ever say: Tufted Titmouse Triptych|
Even the feeder at my parents is eerily quiet. A short visit today netted 3 BCC's, 1 RBN and an A Goldfinch.
|Today ... Nuthatch Triptych. Why can't I get a good photo of the RBN?|
Gorgeous Snow Bunting shot!ReplyDelete
Good stuff! I once had three Tufted Titmouse at my feeder all winter many years ago. Haven't had any since! Never thought of "triptych"!ReplyDelete
Spring birds are slowly appearing...
Kikipotamus - Thanks for the compliment. I love that shot as well. If nothing else, it was taken in nice sunlight. I took it while sitting in my car. A car makes a surprisingly good blind.ReplyDelete
Hope you feel better soon Dwayne! Love the T-T-T- triptych.ReplyDelete
I thought about Florida too for March, and was so close to booking but ended up not doing it because a lot of the places we wanted to stay were all booked up (in the keys especially). Keeping it in mind for next year!
