A blue day.

6 posts in this topic

I haven't posted much lately, due to the lack of bird activity in mid summer and I've also got to the point where I don't normally take shots of birds just sitting in trees anymore, unless they're unique or especially colorful. I get bored quite easily. grin I was lucky today and got a rare Blue Grosbeak and a long sought after Indigo Bunting. I couldn't get very close to the Grosbeak, but the Buntings are fairly approachable.

Nice shots Mike? Did you get any decent pics or catch any fish while you were up north?

Thanks, Jim.

Fishing off the dock, I caught just a couple rock bass, a small perch and 1 snot rocket pushing 5#.

I didn't do much better with a camera. Got a shot of a gull taking off with my perch and the shot of this Osprey by Dent on the way there. As usual, the Osprey was shot in crappy light.

We should all have such 'blue' days. The grosbeak is a neat find. Hope they start calling Marshall home permanently. Nice shots.
