Hummer (short video)

video 

My husband and I spent part of the afternoon at Scott Park again looking for birds.  We saw another Black and White Warbler, many American Redstarts and some Hooded Warblers.  We were bothered a little for the first time this year by mosquitoes.  Not bad but enough that we sprayed ourselves.

We returned to my in-laws house in the woods and had a wonderful outdoors meal prepared by my father-in-law (a wonderful chef!) and then waited for the birds to come to us.  They did.  A beautiful Pileated Woodpecker, Cardinal, Chick-a-dee, Phoebe, and even a Wild Turkey!  A Ruby-throated Hummingbird was perched on top of a dead stick on the very top of the tree over our table.  He finally came down to drink just feet from us.  A perfect end to a most perfect day.
