The time has come for birding in Alabama!
We joined the North Alabama Birdwatchers Society for our first birding experience!
And what else do you see when you go birding?
It was a rainy day and we didn't have much time to enjoy before the rain came but the scenery was, as usual, beautiful.
(see the Heron?)We saw two Bald Eagles way off in a tree like this, but it was gray and dark and I didn't try to photograph them. Even the drab Eastern Wood-Pewee was more drab than usual.But the Beautyberry and Goldenrod couldn't be more stunning! We ended with a trip over to the old harbor in Guntersville at the foot of the bridge into town.
There were quite a few Terns including, a couple Common Tern, a few Black Terns, Caspian Terns, and Forster's Terns. A lifer for me!We spotted this American Coot. Very common here. The picture is heavily cropped.
An American Avocet. A very rare find here indeed!
