The Wonder of Woodman Fen

An incredible lunch break at Woodman Fen today. A patient Cooper's Hawk posed for hundreds of photos, saw numerous species of warblers and added five new species to my count for the year. Very nice lunch get-away.

Before work, I stopped at Spring Valley Wildlife Area to see what I could see. Spotted my first Yellow Warbler and the nastiest Northern Cardinal you've ever seen.
