Back Deck series, volume 8

10 posts in this topic

What a nasty day. Cold and wet. Spent most of it working on updating my HSOforum, but kept an eye out the patio door with camera at hand. Just some grab shots as the day wore on:

Chestnut sided warbler:

Sweet shots, Ken. Looks like your back deck continues to be the place to be in the bird world. smilesmile

One correction. Your blackburnian ID is really a bay-breasted. smile

Wish I had a patio to get a variety of shots like you, Ken. Very nice.

I want your back deck. Wonderful shots and wonderful birdlife. I'll even take the cold and wet. Any day spent in a turtleneck and cords is a go-o-o-od day in my book.

Nice work Ken especially the first couple of shots! You have a bountiful amount of species for a back deck!

What the heck, I've still yet to see a baybreasted and you've got one out your back deck?!! Great series, love the transitionary plumage on the chestnutsided, you can see the fall colors coming through nicely. Also, great perch to see a ruby throated hummingbird on.

Thanks all! My yard (and deck) is on the border of about three different eco-systems, so I'm fortunate to have a lot of variety. A couple of days ago when I took these it seemed as if there was a larger number of birds than usual. I missed white-throated sparrows, at least two other types of sparrows, nuthatches, purple finches and a couple of birds I couldn't get a handle on. The vireo is the first pic I've gotten of that one, and I'd only gotten a glimpse of a blackburnian earlier this week with Steve and couldn''t believe when this similarly colored bird showed up in the balsams just past my feeder. One of these days I'm going to take some time and put my blind on the deck and sit with my 500 and try to get some higher quality shots.
