A few from morning scouting trip

Discussion in 'Birds' started by hangin tree, Jun 26, 2007.

  1. While looking for the Elusive Kingfisher caught a few locals from the site:

    First to appear in the early morning sun was a Little Green Heron in a tree:

    Then Wouldn't you know there was a beaver on a log:

    The little one says "Wait where you going with that mouse?"

    Looks like a successful scouting trip Gary! By the way I think your Pine Warbler is a Prothonotary which is even better.
  9. How do you tell the difference?

    Here is another shot of it:

    I saw Many Belted Kingfishers but few shots, I'm going back later this afternoon to see what I can find.

    The wings are indicative of a Protho as is the abundance of yellow on the chest. Good luck this afternoon!
  11. I looked up the Difference and I believe you are correct the lack of the white wing bars and the Brighter Color account for the difference. And it is indeed a Prothonotary Warbler at that.:biggrin::rolleyes: 
  12. Why thanks Gary! With friends like you - I gotta do my best!

  13. Your doing Great and Many of Big Red were excellent as well, but you now know the difference.
  14. I"m still embarrassed about the mix-up on my hawks! Guess I've learned a valuable lesson - check bird book first before blurting out what I "think" it is!:Waldo:
