A Nice Little Bird
I believe this bird is an Eastern Phoebe, but I could of course be wrong. Since I haven't been seeing many birds in the past few years I'm out of practice identifying them, so I'm also not as confident in my identification. But I think I still can do okay.
I thought the bird was maybe a robin when I was taking the pictures, but I kept seeing this flash of what looked like a dull yellowy color. You can see in this picture it almost looks yellow. I did confirm that the bird was still there when it finally flew away.
It took me a few seconds but I finally found the branch in the camera's view screen. I blindly took the shot and figured at the time that I probably got nothing. I even doubted that the bird was still there. But when I got home I saw the bird sitting right there on the very branch I assumed it had landed on. You can see it there in the top left.
I'm starting to have fun now. Posting a little more often and seeing more nature is the best thing for me. Hopefully I can keep it up. We'll see what happens. And who knows what I might come up with next. Big things seem to happen sometimes when I get going. I'll talk to you later.
