Fortunately for all of us, Robert James woke up near the end of our session and showed us his deep blue eyes.

I can't always guarantee a smile in a new born session.

My collection of local birds is about 25 species so far.  They are fun to watch because they display interesting behaviors and sometimes seem to have personalities like this grumpy YELLOW RUMP WARBLER (left).  The names can be pretty funny too.  

This immature is also called the MYRTLE WARBLER.  Or it may be a BAY BREASTED or a BLACKPOLE - these guys are tricky.  If you see a glaring error please make a comment.

On the right is an immature

Fortunately, for the rest of us, many song birds have very distinctive features as seen in the next 6 images.
