Oh, you Ovenbirds…I have been trying to get a decent, clear, on a branch or in the open photo of an Ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapilla) for the last two weeks with very little success. The best opportunity I had was a cold, foggy morning with heavy rain falling when multiple birds were walking only several feet in front of me, but that did not end well. These shots were taken a few days ago with a bird skulking about the brush under shrubs and trees along a trail. Good luck to you all with your birding this weekend. RTPI President Twan Leenders, Conservation Technician Elyse Henshaw, Intern Alex Shipherd, Affiliate Sean Graesser and I will all be attending the Noble Proctor BioBlitz Challenge at Hammonasset Beach State Park in Madison, Connecticut with likely well over 100 other experts as we pay tribute to Noble with a day of discovering, learning and wonderful company. Twan and I have assisted in coordinating the event, and we will undoubtedly have many stories and countless photos to share with you as well as some tremendous finds…and we hope to see you there!
