Wetland Tour Continues . . . — 25 Comments

  1. Really nice back to back posts BW. As you know, I am a bird illiterate so I currently have no guess as to your pic. It does kind of look like that dead bird you found at the camp the other day however. Anyway, I thought I would try to take this opportunity to try to be the first commentor even though I am not officially entering myself in the contest. I’ve had a couple of lucky contest results so I’ll let some other deserving reader try their shot at that groovy cool scoop.

  2. It’s a Yellow bird, high up in a “bayou” tree. Yellow bird, you sit all alone like me…OK, I know songs not birds. I hope there is SOMEONE reading this who remembers the actual Yellow Bird song. They can sing my answer and have it stuck in their head too! LOL!

  3. (never think you can correct the bayou woman)

    Choup must be fishing which I think is a good thing.

    Where is the tree frogs and anoles?

    Bird might be a vireo. I cheated best I could and came up empty.

    Sacaulait bite is firing up but no size I can find…..

    • The baby frogs were hopping too quickly on the lily pads for me to catch them . . . by the time i got close enough to photo, they were long gone! The Anoles are at my house!

      Bird does look a little like a vireo.

      Sac au lait size doesn’t matter. Just the taste that counts!

    • Fish and game? I thought you were going for the big fish Darth-like photo. Didn’t know you meant not even finding legals! My failure.

      And uh, Ha back!

      Oh, Choup is MIA

  4. No clue what the bird is, but I’m really enjoying the bayou tour. Love the dragonfly pic. Being that most mosquitos find me very tastey, I just love dragonflies!

  5. I’m gonna call it a prothonotary warbler. The bayou tour is great! Would really love to have a real one with you!

  6. I was gonna call it that too but kept biting my tongue.
    Temps dropping like rock here. Might be a two blankie night.

  7. Dragonfly? You mean a Mosquito Hawk?

    I tend to agree with JoanS, but I seem find the “Golden Swamp Warbler” title a bit more in keeping with the area of photography. Same bird though.

  8. Dragon fly; wassup wit dat? Pretty soon I’ll have to stop using hose pipe, supper and the like! My guess is American Goldfinch; female variety. The colors are not well defined.

    • Now, Tar Baby, calm down. Ain’t nobody gonna make you stop using yo favrit words. Where I grew up, these were not called mosquito hawks, sorry. But I will be doing a post about that if I can better photos as I go along!!!!

  9. The coffee mug came the other day with the surprise of 2 bags of coffee, how nice! The mug is even better “in person” than online. Thanks Community Coffee!!! Really looking forward to getting back down south in Nov. for another mission trip, meeting new people and all that fun southern stuff.
    Thanks again,

  10. Re: Tiny Yellow Bird
    BW, we are not birders. True story. A few years ago a boat stopped at the camp with four people. They all quickly got out, ignored us, and whispering to each other, walk/ran in a crouching position to the back of the camp. There in our stacked up crab traps was a tiny yellow bird. Later when the fun was over, they told us it was called a Yellow Pop. Less common is the Blue Pop which we have since seen but only once.

    Don’t know if this means anything to you bird folk but that’s ma story!

      • We got back home Sunday from four days out there. There is not as much activity going on so I guess they are winding down on the project. One of the supers told us they would be done in October. The water is so fresh that we have tons of water lillies in the Raccourci. We’ve been unable to run the net because of them. Please, save those seeds, BW! The lady up the street cut all of her trees down before I could snitch any seed pods. We’ll connect one of these days.

  11. Hi Wendy!
    Thanks for your comments on my crocheting! I happened upon your blog through someone else’s blog (don’t remember whose, lol) and you have a lot of things on your blog that I really enjoy. We like to fish and hunt, are country at heart even though we live in the city now, and I just enjoy lots of what you write about. Come visit again anytime!
