When – 30th April, 2017
Where – Peace Valley Park, along the North side trail near the Nature Center
This Rose-breasted Grosbeak was handsomely posing for us on a branch very close to the trail. I managed to get a few shots before it flew away, the one below is perhaps the best of the lot. The Grosbeak has a nice pose and expression, my only regret is the rather poor lighting which resulting in quite high an ISO.
Spring brought a whole lot of Catbirds with it – at Peace Valley Park, Catbirds challenge Robins in gross population count now. As we walked along the trail, I snapped a photo of this catbird lunging at a fruit. I’m pleased with this photo too – it captures a fleeting moment nicely.
