|Magnolia warbler. Huge improvements on my first shots of magnolias.|
|Wish I could have got a clearer shot of this robin collecting for her nest.|
Well, I'll admit I might have gone a little overboard on the pishing and should probably pull it back a bit. In my excitement I was just pishing all over the place, pishing out of control. I imagine if everyone was doing it all the time, they would just get used to it and it wouldn't be effective anymore... So I guess my adventures in pishing will have to be made at a minimum.
I went down to the pine stand to see if I could pish out some pine warblers, which would have been a lifer for me. I've heard them but still never seen them. They're giving me a real hard time, those pine warblers! I did see this fine wood duck and his mate though...
|Whose bum? At first I thought this was a very strange black bird with very unfamiliar white stripes. Oh, it's just glossy!|
Ok, at this point I had been there a few hours, and I kept saying, "Jenna, you need to go home now." But it was always the same, "Just one more trip up to the ridge." And I can't say no to myself...no matter how sore/hungry/thirsty I'm getting. So that's what I did.
However, I am going to take a little break now...come back tomorrow for the rest of the afternoon!
