The first few hours of the morning have been good lately, I had a Wilson’s Warbler for two days, and this morning I finally added Yellow-throated Vireo for the year. Unfortunately it was too quick for me to get a photo.
But I did get a photo of a Black-billed Cuckoo!
OK, the photo is terrible. The stupid leaf blocked the view of the bill, and its not a great shot anyway. But it could be worse! Here’s the shot from the burst just before this one–
Can’t make out heads or tails on this cuckoo–literally! But once again, could be worse. Here’s the first shot I “got”–can’t even find the bird in the foliage!
Just to round out the post, here’s the shot I “got” of the Yellow-throated Vireo. Let me know if you can see it, because I can’t!
Almost back into the eBird Yard list top 20 for 2015. More birds to see!
