Took a morning walk with my mom while we did not see a wide variety of birds we did see two that were new to her. The first one almost drove me banannas trying to get a shot of it.
Of the 30-50 shots I tried to take of this bird 1 turned out. It is a Yellow Billed Cuckoo bird. They love thick bushes and trees making it hard to get a shot .
This was the second bird that I managed to get a 1/2 decent photo of and it is a female Summer Tanager. Not what I would have guessed seeing as the male is a red like the Cardinal. It was a treat to see the female of this species though. Now it makes it even more confusing when I see a yellow bird because I have to slow way down and look for the patterns in the feathers or even the eye color. Prothonatary Warbler, Yellow Throated Warbler and Hooded Warbler are the three I can ID at a glance the others well will take a bit more to get the muscle memory. That is one reason I love WIFI and Bluetooth on the camera. Send it to the phone and see if Merlin can help me out . If Merlin cannot then I have a few books at the house to help me out.
