    I spotted a pair of Carolina wrens gathering nesting material. They were on the top of a link fence and were building the nest, next to a light, on top of a speaker on the porch, which I thought was odd, given the amount of alternative natural sites on the property. I have since learned they are quite prone to nesting in domesticated areas. I thought the contrast of the habitat opposed to nature was interesting. I also chose to take a shot from behind one of them for a change from the norm.E9520356-EBF1-47B7-92D5-15117634B4B16E2ABF6D-81B1-4CD7-996D-89091AAD15874E715D2E-3394-431E-8BD6-84E0B26BDA97

    Talk about missing a shot! I got the settings right but the autofocus on my camera has lots to be desired. C00E9244-2591-4F24-BBA6-63D1F5C90C4F

    I am so fortunate to live on a property which is home to many species of birds. There are owls, hawks, ospreys, warblers, and many, many others. One of my favorite subjects are herons, specifically, night herons, which I have the opportunity to see Hunting along the shoreline and Roosting in the trees. I’ve learned a lot over the years from just observing them but found the Cornell site and the Merlin app very helpful in learning about their mating, nesting and community habits. Thank you Melissa! I would love to hear from and see any photos from the rest of you taking the course. Here are shots of two black crowned night herons and a juvenile yellow crested night heron. The light was poor on the black crowns and the lens is lImited to 6.7 aperture here.F33F1880-9C15-40D2-B667-1E3AB1D25C0C7420B37C-BEDD-44D4-A9B2-576AD000BF98A776453E-6D8A-410E-8983-024DF7E221ED
