Went to the local lake where I once saw so many different kinds of ducks , I couldn't believe it. I have checked that spot every once in awhile and there have never been back so close to the shoreline where I was able to photograph them. Then by luck I checked Saturday and there they where. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

The Warblers have arrived and I don't even have to go out of the front yard. By accident I noticed something moving in the front tree and it was a bird. Naturally I ran to get my camera and everyday now I have been seeing a new one. But only the Oven bird and the Black throated warbler are new for me. Then a trip to West Palm house hunting and a few extra birds thrown in. A break from bobcat seeking this week. And yes he was seen at the levee . Noted in Rosy finches blog great pic too. So envious. well next time.
