01.11.2020 Summer Flashback

This weekend is not at all typical of what our weather should be.  50’s and 60’s just aren’t right at this time of year in New England and lately it hasn’t been cold enough to call this a January thaw.  But warm weather does bring to mind summer photography and I came across this old shot I had not shared on the blog before. At least I don’t think I did.

Happy Saturday. 🙂

  1. It’s good you were able to get that close, though you could’ve been using a long lens and might have cropped the image.

    That’s wonderful detail on the feathers. I just spent too much time trying to figure out the bill color on these. Some photos show gray/yellow-orange combinations, and others show a completely yellow bill. I think I read that it’s a distinction between juvenile and adult, but it could be breeding/non-breeding. Do you know? It’s funny that some of the best birding sites show the difference, but don’t offer an explanation.

    A fine shot, Steve, and the thought of summer is pleasing. I must say I’m enjoying the unseasonable temps!

    • We are having much nicer and longer walks with Bentley because of the temperature although he isn’t a fan of the winds accompanying it. It’s nice also to be able to burn less wood for a few days. 73° in the house this morning.

    Fascinating timing, Steve. I took advantage of today’s heat wave to go hiking with my father and we stumbled across a Great Blue posing on a log over top a small bit of water. I had a great time photographing it. Haven’t looked at the photos yet, but I’m hoping some will turn out. Yours is a lovely example of these beautiful birds. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Thank you for taking us back to a verdant summer’s day with a gorgeous avian apparition, Steve. It’s nice to know those days will return.

    It’s warmer than it should be here too, so hoping for a day in the garden tomorrow – might as well take advantage of it!

    I’m sometimes surprised at the range of the GBH. It seems like I see ’em all over the country – but yet it’s always a thrill. Nice shot.
