A quick post this weekend on what was a spectacular [tag]bird watching[/tag] adventure on Granite Point. The trees, bushes and shrubs were full of Sparrows and Warblers, thanks to a cold front sliding through the state Friday night.
One incident of note…. I has hit head on by a Merlin! As I sat on a small bank among the bushes photographing birds just off Granite Point Road, a Merlin came from out of nowhere and flew into my face knocking off my hat and nearly causing me to drop my camera rig. The Merlin was fine. I received some lacerations to my face and a pair of bent spectacles. I am sure the hawk was as freaked out as I was.
Enjoy the [tag]photographs[/tag] I took over the weekend, and as always, comments and criticisms are greatly appreciated.
Yet again, I need some help identifying the sparrows in the [tag]photos[/tag] below. Please respond by commenting on this article.
