    It was a good morning for bird photography at a marsh near me. I photographed these birds, along with others, within a couple of hours at the same location. Common Yellowthroat Cerulean Warbler (this is a different one from my previous posts, seems to be a lot of them in the area this year) Bald Eagle ~ juvenile

    Common Redpoll from this morning.

    (As many of you have heard) Early Sunday morning I went out on my first trip specifically aimed at forming my two little brothers' life lists, so I was heavily focusing on pointing out the common and easy to see birds. It was a slow morning overall, but ironically our first somewhat cooperative bird ended up being a Tropical Kingbird (!!!), which flew in from the southeast, perched vocalizing for at least 3 minutes, and then took off flying directly over our heads and resuming it's apparent northwesterly flight. The recordings I obtained in that time confirm it's ID as a first state record Tropical Kingbird! My brothers sure started out as insanely lucky birders. I just submitted a formal report to the Colorado Bird Records Committee and If accepted, it will become Colorado's 503rd state bird! Somehow the state managed to get both a Thick-billed and a Couch's Kingbird before anyone recorded this one. http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S39234794

    A couple of favs from the last couple of days... White-eyed Vireo ~ It took me more than a year to even get a picture of them, so I'm still excited when I get one LOL WEVI09082017 by Michelle Summers, on Flickr Yellow Warbler in the elephant ears. My inner artist loves this shot LOL YEWA09082017-2 by Michelle Summers, on Flickr Bell's Vireo ~ Not a great shot, but the best shot I've ever gotten of one, and it was a new yard/county bird too BEVI09072017 by Michelle Summers, on Flickr

    I had just picked up the camera(yesterday) and was going to take a test shot to check my exposure when my test subject, a common grackle, started a rather intense fight with another grackle. I wasn't prepared for the instant action scene but I fired off dozens of shots anyway and somehow managed to get a few keepers but this was definitely the best.

    Scouting out potential owl holes for weeks paid off when I hiked about 1000 ft up a mountain this morning. Until now, Northern Saw-Whet Owl had only been a heard-only species for me! Northern Saw-Whet Owl by David Tonnessen, on Flickr

    A couple of my favs, so far, from my trip to Lubbock, Texas a week ago... Burrowing Owl, saying "Don't mess with Texas!" BUOW07162017 by Michelle Summers, on Flickr The Burrowing Owl in this shot was an accident, because I'm easily distracted and the beautiful Black-tailed Jackrabbits are very distracting Not a technically good shot, because the light was low and they were far away, but I still like it a lot BUOWJackRabbit07172017 by Michelle Summers, on Flickr
