Townsend's Warbler continued

Another crisp fall day. The past three days were rained out and I had little hope that the Townsend's Warbler was still going to be there today. But it was. I joined fellow blogger Chris Petrak of Tails of Birding and a couple of other birders in staking out the bird. We didn't have to wait too long. It was foraging on and off in the reed-like weeds right in front of us, would occasional fly up and settle some distance away, but would ususally reappear in about the same area. I am much happier with these photos than those I had shown in an earlier post.

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment.
