Last Sunday I participated in a Big Day of birding in our county. And we won! We didn't get the highest species totals, but points were awarded for photos taken and for sharing rarities found with other groups. I birded with two "county-lister" friends who are very astute birders; one has excellent hearing as well, despite his advanced age. Anyway, while this really isn't my style of birding, I was able to add a couple lifers to my list and also to photograph a few nifty birds. Connecticut Warblers, while not rare, are tough to find due to the generally inaccessible habitat they frequent. I have photographed them before, but this shot is perhaps a personal best. And the Pine Warbler shot completes my portfolio of all 25 warbler species that are generally found in our county; I now have good shots of them all.

Congratulations, my friend! But I bet it was only a matter of time. Ever thought about putting together a reference collection? I’d buy it!(If it had senior pricing :-))

Thank you, Rog. As for a special deal, how about Senior Pricing = 2X Normal?

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Thank you both, Phil and Sam, for taking the time to comment; it’s what keeps me going. I couldn’t be more pleased with my Big Day bag.

Thank you, Brad; I appreciate you taking the time to comment. I think we owe all the birds we have here in summer to all the bugs that we also have!
