Huntley Meadows Monday Bird Walk Part II

We had seen this Common Moorhen on the way out on the walk, but I didn't have my digiscoping setup (I was using the scope as a scope, imagine that). He was way on the far side of the main marsh and wouldn't cooperate and come out from behind the grass. I didn't get the focus quite right, but you can see the dark body and the red beak behind the grass.

I was a little luckier digiscoping this red eyed vireo in full song. "Here I am, over here, see me, where are you?"

That Vireo shot is so nice and clear-terrific capture Betsy!

Wow, again. You must be really patient. I think this is the same bird I've heard hundreds of times in the evenings but never seen.
