Yellow-rumped Warbler and Lazuli Bunting at Ford County Lake. 3 May 2013
|#1 -- Lazuli Bunting. This was one of three birds I saw. The quality |
is not up to my standards, but this is a rather uncommon bird, so I
included it in on the blog.
#2 and #3 -- Yellow-rumped Warbler hopping around from branch to branch
in very good light (note the catch light in the eye). Something a bird
photographer should always strive for in their images!
