Magic in the air

Last weekend was a bonanza for spotting migratory birds, particularly spring warblers!  It had rained the previous night and the rich earthy aroma wafted through the woods early in the morning when I went scouting for some good sightings.   There was music in the air as several tiny birds flitted effortlessly from tall trees.   Getting good shots in between branches and leaves was another story.   I was fortunate enough to get a decent shot of my first Baypoll warbler and American Redstart.
