It has been a while. While I have been making it out on the weekends, I have been a bit busy through the week. I have to say, I have been pleasantly surprised with migration this year. The past couple of years have been a bit... dismal. This year has been great. It has been reminiscent of years past, at least the ones prior to the past couple of years.
I have spent the past few weekends at Eagle Creek Park. While migration has been great, I could have wished for better photos. I know many photographers who have gotten some great shots this Fall.

Migration was picking up, but the weather has been pleasant. The trees still have their leaves and the birds are high in the trees, for the most part. Dogwood berries are plentiful, but not many birds are feeding. The highlights were a Yellow-bellied Flycatcher and a Summer Tanager in a beautiful fall plumage; so beautiful.

Migration was booming this weekend. Canada, Golden-winged, and Black-throated Blue Warblers were the highlights. I struggled for shots but managed shots of both the Black-throated species.

Against all odds, most of the spectacular migrants were still around. All the great warblers from last weekend were still around, and a lot more were down and feeding in the dogwood.
I guess I am a bit short on words. The past few weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind. It seems I have been constantly rushing through the weekdays and then the weekends blew by. It makes time fly by too quickly. This week and weekend has not been much different. Let's hope that things slow down.
