Thursday Birding

We went to Amity Woods with the Backyard Birders this morning.
We saw several families of Phoebes, Ken got this cute shot of mom with 3 babies.Our leader, Mark heard a Connecticut Warbler a rare sighting if one would see one which we didn't. We ended our walk waiting to see if this bird would show it's self. Mark had called in what he heard and soon another birder came out to find it. As we were leaving another birder came to see if her luck would be better. We were walking in Isley later today and 3 ladies were out birding from their car and they knew about it. How fast information travels especially in the birding community!!
Ken took this photo of a Red-spotted Purple on the path at Amity.

A little while later he got this photo of a Phoebe with the Red-spotted Purple for lunch.

My photos of the day were this Mullen with a Skipper.

And my bouquet of flowers from our garden, my Peonies are finally blooming.
From my Dove chocolate wrapper: Life is precious and an opportunity for you to make every moment count.
