My reality of today...bah.
Instead of clearing the driveway...again...I will pretend it's spring, specifically May at Magee Marsh. I am casually cavorting along the boardwalk, camera in hand, sunshine upon my balding pate, absorbing the songs and colors arriving from the south.
Oh yes...much better than struggling behind shovels and snow blowers, wondering if one of my fingers fell off somewhere behind me. Cranking up the space heater...Aahhhh....just like being there.
My first and favorite warbly along the boardwalk!
A bundle of Black-and-White energy.
A black throat and a white bottom...it's a Black-throated Blue!
I'm starting to warm up now...
A Black-throated Green Warbly amongst the greenery of spring.
Is it The Biggest Week In American Birding yet?
This Blackburnian is definitely heating things up.
A singing Chestnut-sided Warbly...from behind of course!
Oh my...look at the leaves budding out!
This Palm Warbler has almost blocked out the visions of reality!
A golden ray of sunshine!
Prothonotarys always brighten your day.
Look at all of the yellow on that Yellow-rumped Warbly!
I am now lost in Magee memories...
Nuts...I just heard the snow plow driving down our road...
Back to reality.
Time to hunker down like this Junco...
...unless you're south of the equator...
