Great birds, great photos. I am going to have to find time to get down to Magee Marsh someday soon.

That new camera is kickin' ass and takin' names, girlfriend!

Looks like quite a day you had there, Kathi. I just love that lead-off shot you posted -- that oriole's golden orange breast matches the orange peel almost perfectly! Great shots, all.

What a wonderful collection of birds you captured! I really like the wren's flared tail.

Ooh la la! The Magnolia is especailly stunning. I'm seeing so many beautiful birds on your blog and others that would be lifers for me. You make me want to hit the road and see more, and more, and more...

Beautiful pic of a Gray-cheeked Thrush! Those secretive forest-dwelling spot-breasted thrushes can be tricky, but note how that one has rather cold tones to the upperparts, and the face is plain gray and unadorned, while Swainson's would have a warmer, buffier cast overall and a more prominent buffy eyering and facial coloration.

I struggle so with the members of the Catharus genus. I have got Veery, Hermit and Wood Thrush down, but I still mix up Gray-cheeked and Swainson's.

Thanks, Jim, for pointing out my error. It's fixed, now.
