A walk around Belle Isle last Sunday was generally quiet. But, I met up with Karl Overman and after that a few good birds popped up
I generally find Hermit Thrushes to be quite photogenic. By that I mean they will wait for me and my slow camera
As we were talking Karl pointed out this singing Brown Thrasher. After Karl left, I chased it around for awhile. Alas, with no luck. Then I was distracted by the bird below.
This Peregrine Falcon proved very cooperative. This and one other photo were keepers. I think it's a juvenile male bird.
Finally, I was surprised to see this little female Bufflehead all alone in the large fishing pond across from the yacht club. I thought April 27th might be a little late for it.
