This is probably my last group before the month ends, so let me start with a couple of better shots of two birds that were a bit far off in my previous shots:

Swamp Sparrow
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/30508/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1067429.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/30508/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1067429.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Northern Harrier
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/30508/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1067431.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/30508/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1067431.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/30508/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1067432.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/30508/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1067432.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Now for some new birds:

52. Lesser Goldfinch, female (I think, let me know if I'm wrong)
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/30508/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1067412.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/30508/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1067412.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
So, it didn't occur to me to check the range map for this bird. Now that I have, it's highly unlikely to be a lesser goldfinch, so what is this?
Now I think it's a female house sparrow and its just the lighting that's making it look yellow.
So I'll replace it with a new arrival from this morning:

52. Rose-breasted Grosbeak
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/30508/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1067621.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/30508/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1067621.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

53. Barn Swallow (so hard to get a decent shot, they move so fast)
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/30508/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1067413.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/30508/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1067413.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Strobist had a recent post that I thought fit well here: //strobist.blogspot.com/2013/04/bluebirds-and-stink-bugs.html

Interesting to see the lengths he went to to get the shots, as well as some interesting information regarding feeding habits.

These are just about the last ones I have. It was a good month. Not as good as last year but what are you going to do? The migration is much later here in the east than it was last season.

That's it for me - I even saw a few lifers this month!

A couple of questions:

-did you see any bird you were not able to get a photo of? I saw a bald eagle soaring overhead while I was driving.

-what other types of wildlife did you see while you were out birdwatching? I saw squirrels (got lots of pics), an otter (no pic) and an Arctic Hare (again, no pic).

I've seen a Prairie Falcon twice, but no photo, yet. We are forecast to receive 16" of snow tonight. (On top of 40" in April.) The bears are out of hibernation, but I haven't seen one, yet. Maybe today.

I saw many birds I wasn't able to photograph - mostly waterfowl but others as well. Redheads, goldeneyes, horned and pied-billed grebes, others that I'm not remembering at the moment. Taking this field ornithology course has been such a fantastic experience. As a complete novice, I've learned so much in such a short time I'm planning on taking it again next year, and getting involved with the local birding community. We are lucky to have such an active community in my area.

I had trouble with the hawks ... seen Red tail, Goshawk, Red Shoulder... but only as I was driving 80mph on the freeway...was not safe to slam on my brakes,... or stick my camera out the window for a panning shot while driving with my feet.
04/30/2013 06:31:41 PM · #220
I saw some kind of hawk while on a morning walk but I didn't have my camera with me cause it was supposed to rain. I also saw some dolphins while on a boat to try to get some other gulls (the boat had to turn around and go back to the dock) - plus I've seen plenty of swallows but they are so fast I can't get them in-flight.

I would like to say a huge thank you to Gary for starting this and to everyone who participated. I've had a ball shooting, looking at all your birds. I've learned a lot!
04/30/2013 08:00:04 PM · #221
I really enjoyed this SC. I'm done at 79! Not too bad for a very wintry April. Another 16" of snow forecast for the next 24 hours. That's on top of the 40" we received in April. Learned a lot. Thanks, everyone, for the effort.

This side challenge provided a good place to participate in a photography related exercise while the site's been dominated by the hateful clique voting of the TPL.

Well after a slow start the weather and my schedule co-operated and let me get out a few times here towards the end of the month. I was able to get almost 90 birds. Short of my total from last year. The migration seems to be a bit delayed and many of the usual suspects have not yet arrived in South East PA. Poor Richard. I can see the weather for Colorado and it seems like snow is the norm this month. He did very well in spite of the challenges that snow and cold threw his way. I enjoyed seeing all of the posts from everyone. The exotic birds from distant places were especially nice. I can't wait to do this again next year!
