Swing and a miss...

Went out specifically hoping to find a lifer migrating Virginia Rail this afternoon in some swampy area on my birding trail. Well after an hour of looking I finally bumped into two of them and then whiffed badly on the pictures. Hoping they stick around a few more days so I can try again, but holy smokes are they elusive and quick through the viewfinder!

I did manage slightly better shots on this Blue-gray Gnatcatcher:

Good for you! Nice find and photos. I can rarely get the B-G Gnatcatchers to sit still for more than a millisecond! Good Going!
