Ah, a scarlet tananger in Robert’s Hill Conservation Area. I have a bird book app on my iphone that I used to call him in. He was a bit agitated with me because he thought another male was hanging around trying to take away his mate. Sometimes his red almost looked orange! Here’s alittle bit of a movie, watch how he shakes, he’s just so worried:
I ran into this Barred Owl in Robert’s Hill Conservation Area (Leeds, Massachusetts) What a beauty! It was first hard to see because it was high up on a dead snag (pics below) but then it flew right up to me and posed.
Here he is hooting at me. Sorry the image is on its side, I just bought a new camera and didn’t have time to read the instructions, oops.
