Look…up in the sky…it’s a bird…it’s a plane –
Well, of course it was a bird, but one I didn’t recognize.
As I was standing on the deck the other day, I kept seeing little flashes of lemon in the canopy of leaves overhead. Finally, one these lovelies landed close enough for me to get a picture.
I wasn’t sure what kind of bird it was until I had a chance to pull out the ID book. Turns out it is a Blue-headed Vireo – which is a first for me.
It was a shy and fidgety little fellow that didn’t stay close for long. It landed on the Dogwood branch, then got a quick drink from the fountain, and then returned to the tree-tops.
It’s always makes my day to get a first time photo. 🙂
