Day 204 - 23rd July 2015 - Ovenbird, Black & White Warbler, Lilies and a Catbird

Looks like a nice day on the horizon, sun is coming through. Back to work, sure it will be busy but it was nice to be home yesterday. More researchers coming today and other things to finish up.
Drizzle most of the day, but the sun and humidity broke through later in the day. By supper time the air was clear and beautiful once again. My morning walk, yielded lots of birds but not great shots. However, the yard seems to be a hot spot of activity at any given time. Seems there is a family of Black and White Warblers in the apple trees, and finally I saw an Ovenbird after hearing them all summer. The Catbird flitted through, enjoying some berries from the Honeysuckle bush and of course the regulars - Northern Parulas, Red eyed Vireos, Magnolia Warblers and Robins etc. Finished the day off with a swim in the lake and a beer on Lois' back deck.
I'm not sure who this one is.
The Shasta Daisies are blooming.
One of the new lilies I planted in the spring.
The Hummingbirds are busy at the feeders.
Black and White Warbler.
The Catbird. He did take a few minutes to pop up on a branch and sing to me.

Enjoy your day!
