But before we even left the house, we noticed a beautiful Indigo Bunting in our backyard. We had just been commenting that we still hadn't seen an Indigo Bunting in all our travels...and there he is in a small backyard in the city of Worcester.
We had Baltimore Orioles calling high up in the canopy, but this beautiful male was actually flying around fairly low and sat still long enough for me to get a shot.
With the foliage coming out more every day, I was lucky that this Magnolia Warbler was in one of the oaks; otherwise, I'm not sure I would have gotten a decent shot...they just constantly keep moving at this time of the year.
I've been very lucky this spring -- I think I've gotten some of my best photographs of spring warblers this year. Of course this means that when it comes to picking just one photograph for my calendar for next May I'm going to have a very hard time.....
