My apologies for a lack of posting over the last few months due in part to major exterior renovations to my home. I knew it'd be time consuming, but WOW did I still have a steep learning curve!
I was able to find some blind time prior to the project and managed to capture a few first-timers during the Fall migration.

1. I think my last post included the misidentification of a Summer Tanager. I won't be fooled twice as shown by this thirsty female Summer Tanager.

2. Interesting that about 2 weeks later came this thirsty male Scarlet Tanager in almost complete fall plumage. I'm not proud about the birdbath in frame, but this is the first capture I have of a Scarlet Tanager.

3. I also managed to capture this Palm Warbler passing through; another first for me. I'd happily entertain alternate IDs as my Warbler ID skills admittedly are limited.

4. Although not a new addition for me, it is the earliest I've ever seen a Hermit Thrush come through.

5. The real "stars" of either Fall or Spring migrations are the Rose-breasted Grosbeaks. This year I had plenty of females.....

7. ...and 1st year males, but no adult males. That in itself might be a first!

I'm very glad to have been able to nab a couple of new additions this past Fall prior to the start of my renovations. I hope you've found some images here you've enjoyed and will feel comfortable leaving comments/critiques as I welcome both. Thanks as always for stopping in for a while.

Nice stuff. I would have never guessed that #2 was a scarlet tanager.

Your ID skills are leaps and bounds ahead of me, Steve. The Grosbeaks I'd have known. Nice to grab all those, and nothing wrong with the edge of the birdbath at all. Nicely done!

I appreciate the nice comment Mike. I feel cheated if I don't get a lot of Grosbeaks passing through.

Thank you Al for the compliment and ID confirmation. I troubled over the Palm Warbler ID for about 3 days :)

Thanks Mel. The Scarlet Tanagers aren't exactly scarlet in the fall are they ;)

I appreciate it John. I really look forward to the migrations because you just never know who'll show up.

Much appreciated Sandy. I'm glad you got a chance to check them out.

Haha Ian, you know I still struggle a lot with Warblers and Sparrows....and don't even get me started on shorebirds :) Thanks as always my friend.

It's hard not to like the Grosbeaks isn't it Craig! I appreciate you popping in with some nice words for me.
