2013 Project 365

Project 365/267 – A Birdy Walk

This morning I did manage to get up before dawn and met two other birding friends at Kinder Farm Park. I was really hoping for more exciting warblers, but most have moved on to more southern addresses.

Even with my sore back I did manage to carry the 500mm Lens and lighter tripod. But am still on the mend. At least I have some feathered friends for you to enjoy.


“Pain is a pesky part of being human, I’ve learned it feels like a stab wound to the heart, something I wish we could all do without, in our lives here. Pain is a sudden hurt that can’t be escaped. But then I have also learned that because of pain, I can feel the beauty, tenderness, and freedom of healing. Pain feels like a fast stab wound to the heart. But then healing feels like the wind against your face when you are spreading your wings and flying through the air! We may not have wings growing out of our backs, but healing is the closest thing that will give us that wind against our faces.”

  1. Good to hear that you were able to get around without the scooter! I think that you are wrong though about the migration being about over with. Last week, while in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, there were still large flocks of warblers and other songbirds working their way south. I caught a black-throated blue warbler here at home this week, so I would stay on the look out for birds if I were you. I’m on the mid-western flyway though, not the Atlantic as you are, but I’d still be looking for migrants.

    • We haven’t had a rain storm through here in two weeks. One is due on Monday. Just the last wave is gone. I think we’ll have some more migrants come through too. I’m awaiting. Next time I’ll take a Sherpa to carry my kit.

    • Thanks Lynne. Funny this is, we were three girls looking at him. My friend and I swore it was a red belly WP, the other said..nope a Flicker. Didn’t realize my error until I got home. Got lucky with this shot.

  2. I love your shot of the Northern Flicker–the detail and colors of the image (and the bird itself) are amazing. I like the idea of a Sherpa. It seems like that is almost a necessity with the 500mm lens and all the “stuff” that you need to accompany it.
