The Oven Bird Under the Bush
I have to say I am having way too much fun finding new little birdies every day at Valley Forge. Today I saw a lot of little flutterers in a large bush so I set up my tripod with the legs very low and sat down and waited for somebody to come into my view finder. Instead a loud racket ensued. I could hear a number of little wrens screaming out to their buddies that a big giant with a camera had just invaded their space. In a few minutes all the noise died down and all the little flutterers flew away. I decided to just sit and wait to see how long it would take for them to come back. I sat and waited probably 15 minutes when I heard a little rustle in the leaves. And there in front of me was this beautiful new bird I hadn't seen before - the "Oven Bird." Here he is for your viewing pleasure - just a tiny beautiful little bird.
