Thanks Geoffrey. I had to get out often while the migration was in full swing for a couple weeks, and it paid off nicely.

You got that right kd, nature cannot be outdone! Every time I got out in the field, there's something new, an insect I haven't seen before a different behavior or an array of other things.

Exactly Tom15! As an artist, nature is certainly my first port of call for inspiration! Nature cannot be outdone...but it can inspire and leave us in awe.

I saw one today! No photos, he was too far away, but got Magnolia and Canada too with terrible photos of each, you'll see in a little bit ;)

Thanks Ann and Jamie. These little birds are easy to miss, especially if they aren't calling.

Thanks, though I'll be happy with just one. Especially if I can get pictures half as good as these!

This seems like a great place to go, might take me more than a day to drive there though haha. I'm going to two places, both of which had several lifers for me reported today. One of which was this guy :)
