Summer Tanager

Summer Tanager.
Yesterday was a great day here in Bear Woods, I didn’t do much photography, but instead got to spend the morning with an incredible birder on the back porch. Yesterday was the day for our certification by the Atlanta Audubon Society for our application for designation as a Wildlife Sanctuary. Just sitting and watching and listening to a birder with her knowledge is fantastic. She quickly identified little subtle noises as Wood Thrush and Swainson’s Thrush. She talked to me about the different calls and songs of the birds we were seeing and hearing. I am just hoping some of knowledge can rub off on me! The birds cooperated by sending in some non-frequent visitors for us to see. We had an Acadian Flycatcher, a Blue-winged Warbler (very briefly) and a Yellow-billed Cuckoo. At the end of our morning we had recorded 34 species of birds!
We get Scarlet Tanagers up here all summer, but it isn’t until the fall I get to see their “cousins”, the Summer Tanager. I really enjoy seeing all the visitors up here and look forward to sitting and admiring the songs and sights each morning. I think the next few days will be very busy and hope to have some more new and fresh images of visitors to the newly designated Bear Woods Wildlife Sanctuary.
