Finally, the Sun




After 10 days of obscuring clouds, our beautiful sun once again illuminated the treetops and the shadowed interiors of our hearts. My mother, sister Beth and I celebrated our stars re-emergence by birding, birding, birding. I'm so exhausted that I'm spelling worse than usual and will probably have to re-edit this post tomorrow. The pictures of the black throated blue warbler, oriole and golden winged warbler are very inadequate ehoes of a day of light, mystery and joy.

Gotta like the orange oriole on the orange.

Yes, I love the orange oriole, too - just a great shot.

Cathy,

My son Josh is VERY jealous lol. He is so wanting to go back home to Cincinnati for a visit so he can see all those east coast birds that he missed when we lived there since he wasn't a birder then. He LOVED your photos and I had to laugh when he said, "Yes, got 'em all correct." (He was id'ing the birds as I showed him each picture.) Thanks so much for sharing. We are really enjoying your blog.

Hi Barb,
Tell Josh to have his parents come to Magee Marsh some May where I'd be happy to walk along the bird trail and share the flittering that brings people from across America. Mid-May is best and a southwest wind in mid-May is heaven. (Whew! I'm glad he agrees with my id :0)
