A Flood Of New Photos

Greetings everyone. I know, its been a long time since my last update. We've had rain galore here, flooding in places, and I completed my 6th Spring bird count, so I hope this flurry of new photos is enough to make up for my time away! These were all taken over the past 5 weeks.
I have some great friends who are also fellow wildlife enthusiasts. A couple of these photos would not have been possible without them, so kudos to them for putting up with me tagging along. You know who you are ! :-)

Looks great! I wish I had the eye you do! FYI, even with my untrained eye, I spotted a Brown Thrasher on the U of S campus over the weekend! Exciting for me, probably not for many others though.

From the top to the bottom, or even the bottom to the top, these are exceptional images. There would be NO way to select a favorite. All I can say is well done and I would love to tag along with a few wildlife enthusists and have these incredible opportunities;)~

The American Redstart is rather scary than beautiful, I mean the bird itself. But the photo made it so picturesque! mold damage restoration milwaukee
