Spent the afternoon at the “Matenkosky NWR” or maybe “The Backcountry NWR”, haven’t decided what to call my backyard ‘refuge’. Anyway, it was a pretty boring afternoon. I had hoped for the Yellow-rumped Warblers that I’ve been courting these last few days to get closer, but no luck…..until near sunset.
All of the sweet light had vanished and all of a sudden this Yellow-rumped Warbler decided to perch on one of my “calibrated” sticks…Jackpot! I got two nice photos.
Figuring I can now pack up and go back to the house, then I saw a Lawrence’s Goldfinch! I saw a pair of them a few days ago and never saw them again. This time I saw two males hanging around….Jackpot again!
So I had 4 hours of boredom and 15 minutes of excitement!
