Life has caught up to me lately and has left little room for photography. Harvey has kept me company almost daily and if one is looking for a little comic relief then have that man tag a long for awhile. Here are a few from the last week or so. It's nice to get back into a routine I thoroughly enjoy.

1/ What a surprise when a half dozen of these showed up in my yard and stayed for three days. White-crowned Sparrow.

A great set Joe. That first White Crown shot typifies these birds for me. They are always in a spot they can dive into if danger appears. I was lucky to have several pass through here this spring. :)

A sensational variety Joe, they are all exquisite captures... The WtS is always one of my favorites and I have to go deep in the woods to find the Hermit Thrush... and you have him in your yard... I am still waiting to see the WCS... lovely shots.

I was kind of wondering Joe. Very nice shots once again, very nice indeed. I am not sure what it is but the last one is my favorite, something about the open space and the songster singing away, very nice moment in time!
Great shooting Joe.

Thank you so much Steve. I'll do my best to stay here on a regular basis. What has happened to us is all too familiar to so many families. My brother in law died and my brother has been diagnosed with cancer so everything else becomes insignificant. The photography helps in maintaining some form of normalcy in my life. Thanks so much for commenting so graciously.

Thanks a lot Dave. The Hermit wasn't from my yard but very close to my house. The sweetest sound anyone could imagine. The Wood Thrush may beat it but not by much.

Thanks Bret. I'm very partial to the last one as well. Showing the environment is important to me. It's singing it's heart out and what a sweet sound it is.

All typically great photos, but the White-throat, Oriole, and Thrush are stand-outs.
