Gotta Love PA (kind of long, sorry)

Spent the last couple of days fishing and bird watching in our great state. Took the camera along today. Hope you enjoy.

Morning sunrise along White Deer Creek. The fog certainly added to the morning.



Female Common Yellowthroat that attacked me! I was "pishing" to get an American Redstart to show itself and I must have been right on top of her nest, b/c she came out of the brush running with wings flared. Light was poor!



The Mountain Laurel was in FULL bloom and hanging heavy with water from the evenings showers.







Stopped by a little mountain stream and made one cast with the fly rod and got this guy:



Flowers along the Mid-State Trail:



What a great three days. Took dad fishing and he landed 8 trout, his first trout in two years, I landed in the neighborhood of 30 trout in 2 days, but I didn't fish real hard due to some separated cartilage in my ribs or something like that the doctor said (from coughing too much of you can believe that!).

Over the tree days I saw lots of birds, but I was focused on warblers. I found the following:

Magnolia Warbler 2
Black-throated Green Warbler 1
Blackburnian Warbler 3
American Redstart 1
Ovenbird 2
Louisiana Waterthrush 1
Northern Waterthrush - 2
Common Yellowthroat 2
Hooded Warbler 1
Chestnut-sided Warbler
Black-and-white Warbler - 3
Worm-eating Warbler - 2
Prairie Warbler - 1
Pine Warbler - 1
Northern Parula - 1

Other interesting birds;
Veery
Hermit Thrush
Wood Thrush
Golden-crowned Kinglet
Blue-headed vireo - 5

Some videos (as if this post wasn't long enough!)

How hard is it to focus on a Louisiana Waterthrush?


Turkeys out for their morning jog...why didn't they just run in the woods earlier?


Hermit Thrush saying hi.

Catch-and-Release wild trout.
