So pleased to see that the wren family decided to use the birdhouse I hung in my little backyard!

We call this our bird sanctuary! If you look you can see the wren sitting on the wrought iron pole above the birdhouse!

My wife made my day very special!  I came home from a taxi run at Noon, which meant we went out to eat for lunch instead of breakfast!  As we were leaving, I mentioned that the lawn looked like it didn’t need mowing!  In the morning it was dewy, and I decided I should put mowing the lawn on my list of activities! It was a puzzle to me, until my sweetheart mentioned that she had mowed the lawn while I was gone! She surely got me that time! Thanks heaps, and looking forward to many more years together!

Yellow Warbler –

Seen at Magee Marsh, Ohio on May 11, 2017. Taken with a Canon 7D camera, with Canon EF  100-400 Lens, which I borrowed from Canon.

I took this photo with a 7D Mark II camera and 100-400 lens I borrowed from the Canon folks at their booth at the entrance to Magee Marsh during BWIAB. I loved the camera and lens, though at my age, not sure I want to carry it around all day! As you may have noticed, the series of photos of my trip to Washington D.C. has finished, as now I will likely be featuring photos of the birds I photographed at the Magee Marsh boardwalk, etc.  The Red-breasted Nuthatch was a lifer for me, meaning in Birdwatcher language, the first time you saw it in your life!

Elusive Carolina Wren

After several days of trying to capture a photo of a Carolina Wren, I was successful! We were walking on the Rails to Trails trail near Millersburg, Ohio.

As well as a sparrow!

As we walked on the walking trail, this white-tailed deer decided she wasn’t in any danger!
