  1. Interesting photo with the misty background and color of the marsh-I like it! Thanks for finding that Dickcissel at our chirp outing! It was nice meeting you Kathie.

  2. Hi Kathie

    This is probably my favorite photograph of all the beautiful photos you have posted. Everything the colour, subject and composition just work for me.

    Thanks for sharing this.


  3. Beautiful with the colors, the fog and bird. Thank you for sharing!

  4. That is a very good photo. I like how it evokes autumn despite not having any of the showy colors.

  5. Exquisite photograph! It makes me long to be out of the desert and back in the Northeast.


    Through the dazzling bright blue sky
    Pigeons swim and goldfish fly.
    If you think that this is strange,
    You should see the mountains range!

  6. Beautiful photo...I have yet to see a Bittern.

  7. One of those wonderfully atmospheric photos I would love to take, a beautiful shot Kathie.

  8. Hi Larry! I am finally back in town and back online! It's been a busy 10 days but glad to finally get a chance to blog. I certainly enjoyed meeting you also and hope that we can go birding together again sometime!

    Guy, I am so glad that you like it. I am sure that you have been walking in the fields or a marsh and have felt the mood this photo portrays!

    Emily, thank you for visiting!

    JDS, especially autumn in New England!

    Magical, I have lived in the desert also and am enjoying my sojourn back east as well!

    Ruth, perhaps someday soon you will I hope. I have always seen them quite by accident.

    Denise, thank you so much!

  9. Wow! Kathie, this is just brilliant.
    The Bittern over here is a rare sight.
    You have captured this shot just right.


Welcome to my nest! I hope you will enjoy spending time here with me and the birds. Thank you for your comments. I will try to get back to you as soon as I get back from counting more birds.
