Scarlet Tanager

I was lucky enough to see this Scarlet Tanager. They just love to stay in the tops of the trees. This male popped out for a pose.

Here he is joined by a female. Normally I wouldn’t bother with a shot like this, but how could I resist? A male and female Scarlet Tanager in the same frame. I believe that they were checking out a possible nest site. They came back here once more and were chasing out other birds.

The leaves are out, the birding is getting tough

The leaves are fully out in Massachusetts. This means that getting shots of woodland birds is tough from here on out.

Finally, here is one of my Eastern Wood-Pewees. We have a pair that have settled in the yard and I hop they raise a happy family. I love these guys.

Nashville Warbler

The leaves are fully out and the canopy in the New England woods have closed in. It is a frustrating time of the year because the warblers are moving through. I was walking through the woods this morning and could hear about six different songs from way up in the canopy. This was the only one that I could see!
