If you visit this site regularly, I apologize for the delay in posting my weekly column. I am traveling, currently in North Carolina and have not had access to the internet for several days. Tomorrow morning early, I go for Red-cockaded Woodpecker and Bachman's Sparrow. A few pictures from my new sony H5 are below. Please continue to previous posting for a mystery bird. It has me completely stumped. Below are photos of Blue Grosbeak (Pea Isl) and Snowy Egret (same) and Prothonotary Warbler emerging from nest hole (Dismal Swamp). Got some neat pics of Red-headed Woodpecker at home of friends. Post those later.
