Western Tanger Female On Scotch Broom
I've seen the much more dramatic males in the interior but I have yet to take a photo of one. I'm guessing if a female is here, there is probably a male as well somewhere.
Species: Piranga ludoviciana (Western tanager)

Purple Martins On Nest Box
A rain burst had just passed so I had just taken my camera out again - I hadn't yet put on the GPS.

Tree Swallows Mating
I have photos of these two birds actually doing the act - this seems a bit more romantic. I can just imagine what she is saying. Surprisingly, this shot is handheld at 800mm.
Species: Tachycineta bicolor (Tree Swallow)

Two Tree Swallows On Bird Box
There is a more green and a more blue version sitting on this nest box. The colour doesn't indicate gender.

Swallow Inspecting Birdhouse
These birds didn't really seem to mind the birders close by - the bird was inspecting a nest box and spent quite a bit of time coming half into the hole.
Species: Tachycineta bicolor (Tree Swallow)

Two Tree Swallows In Nestbox
I didn't realize this was a double entrance box. I wonder if one bird is standing on the other.

Tree Swallow Chick Begging For Food
The same chick was monopolizing the hole. I really wonder how the other babies get fed.

Iona Spit At Sunset
The sun had actually set at this point. This is a 3 frame HDR image.

Cotton Wood And Brown Eyed Susan At Sunset
This is a two image stack - the background was shot separate from the flowers because I couldn't get them both in focus without motion blur on the flowers.
Species: Gaillardia aristata (common gaillardia, brown eyed susan)

These really are small birds. Thankfully, they seem very patient with people.

Male Yellowthroat Singing
These birds tend to hide in the brush, slowly working their way to the top, and then they drop down. This individual seemed to spend a lot of time at the top of the bush.
Species: Geothlypis trichas (Common Yellowthroat)

Red Wing Blackbird Comparison
Red Wing Blackbirds were quite common in the Marsh - you could easily see two or three at any time. I thought it would be handy to have a photo of a Red Winged Blackbird in similar light, but it turns out they aren't closely related to Yellow Headed Blackbirds.
