Ruby-throated Hummingbird. These are my first hummingbird pictures of the season! I always get a kick out of how these birds will perch on top of a tall evergreen, as here, or on the power lines leading from the road back to the lodge (pictures of that in a future batch). These are very different perspectives than visiting a hummingbird feeder or feeding at a flower.
Ruby-throated Hummingbird. This is a blowup of the previous picture. The red throat indicates this is a male.
Red-eyed Vireo. Even under the leaf canopy, birds look skyward to search for predators.
Red-eyed Vireo. These are very difficult birds for me to photograph.
Eastern Towhee. By comparison, I find towhees among the easiest of birds to photograph.
Great Crested Flycatcher. Another rare sighting of this commonly heard bird. (Actually, I hear these bird in the woods by my house daily, too.)
