This morning was pretty fun at Mead Gardens. I saw a couple Barred Owls and a few Wood Ducks that were cooperative with my camera, though most other species I saw were not. I heard a Red-eyed Vireo in the park this morning, and I have a brief glimpse at a Painted Bunting on the boardwalk near the feeders. A couple Great Crested Flycatchers were also seen and heard. And I saw/heard nine species of warblers: Black and White Warblers, one Orange-crowned, Common Yellowthroat, Northern Parula, Palm Warblerx (including one yellow/eastern variety), Pine Warblers, Yellow-rumped, and one Prairie Warbler.

When he acquired a telephoto lens, he became progressively more interested in birds and other wildlife. Scott enjoys learning about bird habitats and behavior, striving always to take images that are both beautiful and interpretive. Scott believes photography is a great vehicle to help others to appreciate the wonder for the stuff of earth.
