I've been away for nearly 2 weeks and have lots of new birds to share.
We were in Disneyland then Yosemite for 4 days.
Birdwatching was not planned for the trip but of course I made it happen.
My first new bird was actually in Anaheim,
I knew from it's mannerisms it was a flycatcher of some kind.
Here is a Black Pheobe!!
Then on our last day in Yosemite I finally captured the Acorn Woodpecker.
I'd been hearing them quite a bit then found a place where there were lots of photo ops.
The top bird was exhibiting alot of baby behavior.
They almost look like reflections don't they.
I didn't think I caught it in flight until I got home and began to look through all the pictures.
I had my camera on continuous mode most of the time
so I didn't really always know exactly what I captured.
I honestly think I could have wandered this area all day and kept watching and taking pictures, these Acorns are a joy to watch!
I'll have more new birds to share in the weeks to come.
