I thought I would share some recent photos from around eastern Pennsylvania:

squeezing in a bit of birding

School has been rather time consuming, but I did manage to get a bit of birding in once I got home this afternoon. The yard was filled with Black-throated Green Warblers and Eastern Wood-Pewees. There were also several Scarlet Tanagers and a Northern Parula. The best bird was a Philadelphia Vireo which seemed very interested in me. It is only the second time that I have found one of these in the yard.
