Yesterday I visited Central Winds Park hoping for migrants. It was kind of a slow morning. The cold front up north should have brought migrants down, but weather patterns seem to have held them from coming down to us. So I had 9 warbler species, none of them worth writing home about.

The most unusual bird was a Tennessee Warbler by the lake shore. I had my first of the Fall; before too long I suspect we’ll be inundated with them. I heard a Greater Yellowlegs calling by the small pond.

So I tried to see if I could get some decent photos. I came home with one of my best photos of an , and a posed for photos as well. I also decided to play around with my Canon Poweshot G7 X.

The more I use this camera, the more I like it. I’m preparing a review of the camera that I’m hoping to post soon. Here are a few photos I took in the late morning.

Here is my eBird checklist for the morning. I had 52 species. I also am beginning to use eBird new photo upload feature. It may take a little more work than just linking to my photos, but I like the feature allows you to make notes about individual photos. For instance, if you see 2 Warblers, one male and one female, and photograph both, you can label each photo. That’s kind of nice.
