Mystery Bird By The Meadows Marsh

A few days ago, after a couple months, we returned to the marsh. Even though we had an extremely dry summer the weeds and brush was still to tall and thick to shoot any photos.

Acres of Poison Ivy also had something to do with out absence.

The outside edge of the woods was covered with berries, thick wild grasses with seeds, and of course the small birds having a fall feast.

EJ followed several flocks of Waxwings and small finches. I didn’t take many shots but ultimately these birds caught my attention.

I can’t seem to positively identify them. Phebe, Flycatcher, whatever. They look close to each type.  Fast and fun to watch I added them to the site.

    1. John, thank you very much. These were shot using a Sigma 150-500 on a Canon 70D body, hand held. I normally would have used a Canon 7D mkII (which is typically much clearer with a big lens) but it is out for service. Coming from you it is quite the compliment. Thanks again.
