This is my first newsletter in several weeks. I’ve been putting some shots on Facebook but I just got lazy with the newsletter. Now that migrating songbirds are passing through, I thought you might want to see what we’ve been seeing at the birdbath.
Hummingbirds are more abundant at our house than in recent years, so I’ve been photographing them. Orioles, chats, goldfinches and more have been here, too. Last week, of course, I conducted a hummingbird workshop up at the Barnhart Ranch and Nature Retreat near Berclaire. They had plenty of hummingbirds, but the hot weather almost overcame our enthusiasm. Anyway, here is a mixture of shots from the ranch and from our back yard.
