Flat Rock Rocks!

Bob and I went up to Flat Rock Brook Nature Center in Englewood on May 6th, and it was extremely exciting to hear a KENTUCKY WARBLER singing away within the dense brush and woods. We waited for about 5 minutes for the bird to come out, but it didn’t, so I ventured in a bit, saw the bird for a split second before it flew, and that was that. It was singing from across the path, but I didn’t continue after it.

Bob’s new camera is great. Here are some photos he took…click on any photo to bring you to the full album:

A Baltimore Oriole made for a wonderful subject:
