Twas a great Sunday morning here in Paris Twp.
Here are some of the visitors to our yard.
This Yellow Warbler spent a while cleaning in pretty clear view to my delight. I made a sequence of shots into a little slide show posted here, on YouTube. I think I like it better than my typical animated GIF. Better quality but a bit more work!
Field Sparrow on Jewel Weed
The Rose-breasted Grosbeak is not a rare bird, we get them every summer. Harder to catch is my favourite: the male transitioning to adult plumage. What a nice blend of colours, and in such variation!
I'm thinking this is a Common Yellowthroat.
Not so sure about the one below.
Composite, same bird as above I believe.
Young Red-bellied Woodpecker.
