Drove over to Boxley on Monday and spent an hour at the mill pond. Watched ducks, catbirds, red-winged blackbirds, Vireos, and a few warblers including Common Yellow Throated, and Louisiana waterthrushes. It was nice an cool, after the thundershowers. The mill pond is full of grass and the rains of the week (3 inches) have added needed water to it. I was thinking how much Common Yellowthroats and Carolina Wrens are the same. They both spend their time along brushy fencerows; both seems to be on a constant hunt for spiders and other flying insects, they are nearly the same size; and their song is much the same. Both species are curious and will come to see “whats up” when you stop near them. The big difference is their appearance ! The photos below were taken Monday morning with a Canon 50D and a 400mm lens; handheld.

The past 10 days have been beautiful; just like May is supposed to be (unlike last May). The rivers have plenty of water, everything is green, we had nearly 2.0 inches of gentle rain in 30 hours last week. Most of the migratory birds are busy raising their hatchlings and are not so active at this time. However, the Vireos are still busy calling and mating. I got a nice picture of a White eyed Vireo in a tussle with Blue-gray Gnatcatcher next to the Little Buffalo River over (I could not figure that out). Everyone has heard a White eyed Vireo sing, but if you dont look you probably have not seen one (taken with a Canon 50D and a EF400mm f/5.6L Lens (notice the stunning white eyes):
