Another Ohio First!
We've lucky to get quite a few fantastic birds visiting our gardens over the years. The placement of native plants, water features and good food is the way to attract a wonderful variety of birds to ones garden.
Very early this morning I heard a quiet ruckus(I've always wanted to use that word!) out back. When I arose to check out the clatter and see what was the matter, I was shocked to find a Sag-billed Whirl-eyed Antpitta feeding on the new earth worm feeder I put out Sunday. Using my night scope attachment I managed to get one shot before he walked away into the nether regions of the night.
What an amazing find here on the north coast of America...

Congratulations! Great shot of a very interesting bird.ReplyDelete
I missed your blogging during your hiatus. I am glad to see you back again. I love your sense of humor.ReplyDelete
Poor Joan...ya know, maybe you need a hobby! Thanks for enabling my bad humor though!Delete
I had one of those at my feeder last year, only it was bright blue and had no beak. Same bird, though. I think it took my wheelbarrow.ReplyDelete
Jeepers...must have been a big one.Delete
Interesting find . Every once in a while we find something that is a long way from home.ReplyDelete
A very long way...but not as far as my sanity!Delete
I am SO glad that you are back! PaulaReplyDelete
So rare, it hasn't even made it into the bird guides!! Congratulations!ReplyDelete
I'll make sure it's in my guide when someone is foolish enough to give me the money to publish!Delete
