Birds. Helicopter. Birds.

Today we had lots of birds.  Not a legendary wave day, but the busiest bird day since I've been on the island.   Northern Waterthrush, Blackpoll, and Bobolink, to name but a few visitors.  Of course, today was the day that a helicopter had to land on the island.  We hope that tomorrow brings even more birds.  And fewer helicopters.

Here we have a gray-headed Orange-crowned Warbler.  A very attractive fellow.
This Blackpoll Warbler happened into the visar of one Rob Rockly this morning.  Later it happened into a net.  Then into a hand.  Then onto a memory card.  And, finally, onto your retinas and into your brains.
