Rainy day birding

I did not go birding this morning… My back hurt from doing some work around the house yesterday and I figured I would take the morning off… I thought the rain would come early, but it did not start until late morning… Oh well.. I went by Wolcott Mill Metropark entrance to see if I could hear anything calling in the woods that would make me want to chase it in the rain…. I heard the familiar call of the House Wren… my first one of the year… I pulled out the camera in the sprinkling rain and took a few shots.. He noticed me and scolded me loudly before taking off… An American Kestrel was hunting near the entrance… Stopped by Stony Creek and there was a Common Loon swimming and diving right near the beach… by this time it was raining steadily so I did not try to get out and photograph it… I did run into a pair of Tufted Titmouse hanging out in some pines… they were funny to watch….

  1. Paul I stumbled upon your blog this morning while trying to figure out what types of ducks I took pics of at Stoney creek was hoping maybe if I send you the photos you could tell me what they are?

  2. I saw your link from the birders email listserv. I just wanted to say how much I love your photography. I really like the one you took of the Titmouse hanging down from the branches. Bookmarked your site to come back for more.
