Pennsylvania Photos -- Birds

The glories of Spring are over and we are settling into the long, hot greenery of Summer. So it's a good time to look back over the past few months activity. Things like:

Nest building

Wood pecking

Hiding in a bush hoping the big critter with a camera won't see me. This is a gray catbird [sometimes called a "black-capped" catbird] He had actually just finished beating the crap out of a rival and was resting.

This guy is a chipping sparrow who hung out on my driveway until a catbird showed up and scared him away. The picture is a bit blurry because I was standing in my kitchen and shooting through a screened window.

And finally, watching the goings-on from a nearby tree was this guy, a "least flycatcher".
