September 11th, 2015 – Avian Friday: Buggin’
It seems like ages since I’ve been out on any bird photography outings. I totally missed the July hummingbird season this year, but I did make four trips over to capture the Bald Eagles at Big Beef Creek on Hood Canal. This time of year things seem to always be a bit spotty. In years past I haven’t really targeted any particular local species during the months of September and October as many birds begin to migrate away from our region during this time of the year.
Well, here’s another selection from the archives of the small warbler family, the Golden-crowned Kinglet. These guys can be somewhat challenging to photograph as they are almost always on the move. They hardly ever sit still long enough to pose for the paparazzi.
