Video time

It is getting quite hard in my restricted area to find new species at the moment but nevertheless, we had an excellent morning in the arboretum today.

Four, possibly five, male Bobolinks in the southern field and two males and a female in the northern field. Crept along the edges of the field to try to get closer and did manage to get a few better shots than previously plus short snatches of digiscoped video (see below). Seems that there is less display flying going on so presumably nesting sites have been chosen, but one male did a high singing spiral that was rather splendid.

The Great Horned Owl is still rearing its youngster on the nest in a tall maple tree. Indigo Buntings were aplenty and one sang from a snag, thus allowing me to get a video of him … of course, all was not perfect as he was back-lit.

Here is the video and some still images.
