In April you have already posted 3 would-be life birds for me, made even worse by the fact we aren't going to Floirda like originally planned next week.

Good stuff.

Your last set of pcitures didn't go through though and I want to see the Indigo Bunting Blue Grobeak shot.

hmm. I'm having problems with hosts for pix. See if I can fix it. I can see the photos I post, wonder why others cannot. I need to find a site where I can resize them too.
Anyway, added rose breasted grosbeak, Baltimore oriole, orchard orioles,summer tanagers,eastern kingbird today.

Wow! The tanagers melt my heart. I only have ever seen flashes of them flitting through foliage. Probably a dumb question, but do you have to do much hunkering down and waiting to get the shots you get? Or do you have some kind of mystical avian aura that calls the birds to you?

not much hunkering here, Tamara...:) I guess just being at the right place and time is just a lucky thing. During migration you can literally sit in one spot and see many of the most recent I've posted, including the tanangers, orioles, buntings, and warblers. Dozens of hummingbirds arrived on the beach about 2 weeks ago and they are still putting on a display.

Fantastic picture, mark, those eagles look almost alive.

But seriously, buddy, a fantastic two-year run of incredible photos. I'd be proud to have taken just one of them. Beautiful work.

Another good one, Mark.
I'm assuming the scissor tailed flycatcher was in FL.
Truely a good find.
