Bird photos taken during last couple of months

Last few months have been tough for birding but have tried to take some time out every now and then. Summer has been tough with so much heat. Can't wait for winter to start.

Below are some photos taken in Bob Wood Ruff park. Have seen some cliff swallows flying around but never got a chance to take a photo. But this time we saw their roosting and for the first time saw these cute birds. Also seen were Painted Bunting and other birds.

Couple of weeks back made a trip to White Rock Lake. This time I made it to the Fish Hatchery area for the first time. Reached at around 7 in the morning and saw the area buzzing with lot of birds already. Only after reaching the area I realized why this place is famous for birding. Its a very good place to watch the waders and shorebirds. But the good thing is we get to watch the warblers and other woodland birds too. Had a very good time down here.

Got to see Least Sandpiper for the first time. I was able to see some of returning summer migrant warblers like Wilson's warbler and Nashville Warbler. I was also reading about the presence of Monk Parakeets till now but got a chance to have a look at them for the first time. Also got to see White eyed vireos and Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher.
