June 2 2015 Carleton Place Ottawa Sunny 17/7c
I must have been half asleep when Iain stopped the car and pointed to a Bobolink singing on a fencepost. He reversed the car and as I fumbled with my camera the songster just sat there, singing its heart out hoping to attract a mate. I used the D7000 and Tamron 150mm-600mm.
Finally after a little enticement and with a recorded call, the Field Sparrow popped out of the brush to see what all the fuss was about and yet another lifer. Two lifers in ten minutes, you gotta love Birding pals!

I spent the rest of the day in the Ottawa area and photographed an Alder Flycatcher. It was time to leave the capital not before a wee nap. Unfortunately and probably because of birding fatigue I had left my headlights on when I fell asleep and the battery was dead. CAA came my rescue in five minutes and soon I was on the road to New Brunswick, skipping Quebec as I intend to bird the Gaspe Peninsula on my return journey.
I am slowly catching up with my blogging but just when I try to catch up I fall behind, C'est la vie!
