Well, t seems that although I’ve been going birding at every opportunity, I have not been posting anything at all. Once again, my only excuse is laziness. I finally downloaded the photos I’ve taken since the last time I posted and have been trying to sort through a couple of thousand shots for the few that are useable and have enough for a short post.
Here’s a couple of warblers I saw in late September and early October at Palo Duro Canyon.
This is a first-winter female Orange-crowned Warbler (taiga). She was very active that morning hunting bugs for breakfast.
This one is a Nashville Warbler. The first one I’ve ever seen. They aren’t especially uncommon in fall in the canyon, but I had never run across one. this one is a young female, I think.
