It is amazing what diversity of birds are visible in Georgia and how you see different species appearing in one area and then not in the next neighborhood over. We went over to our friends home in Alpharetta to see if I could catch a shot of the yellow-variant of a Red-bellied Woodpecker that they have been seeing. That rare bird did not show but we got a range of other birds some of which, like this beautiful yellow Pine Warbler, I never see at my house in Roswell.
We got a nice variety of birds who came up to the feeders and posed in the nearby trees. There was also a great symphony of bird calls which ebbed and flowed with the birds moving around. You could tell if a bird of prey passed by when the songs suddenly stopped and then soon after, the sound would rise and the little birds would quickly re-appear.
I guess this wouldn’t be an exciting Memorial Day for too many people but I sure enjoyed it.
