The activity at my feeders has slowed down a bit lately, so last week I opted for a change of scenery. I packed up my camera, slipped on my Merrells, and spent a morning meandering along the Chattahoochee River. Now, I am one who loves going to church, but I must say that the beauty of nature is my preferred sanctuary, and the sound of birds singing with the melody of the river in the background is my favorite worship music – true soul nourishment!
While I was there, most of the birds were playing hide and seek with me. They were hiding…I was seeking…and they were winning, but I did manage to snap a few photos along the way. Like this Eastern Phoebe…
…and this Eastern Bluebird.
I also got a picture of a bird that was new to me. It was quite flitty, darting about from branch to branch., well camouflaged amidst the leaves and the sunlight. It had an olive colored back, a creamy front with a matching eye-ring, and black and yellow bars on its wings. I am wondering if it was a Least Flycatcher – any thoughts?
