There's often dozens of American coots on the marsh, but today most of them were crammed together into a single, massive flotilla.
There were dozens of tree swallows all over the marsh. Although I didn't have enough light to adequately capture the action, I practiced panning anyway, trying to follow their rapid, darting flights with my zoom lens (& great difficulty.)
I see yellow-rumped warblers from time to time in our area, but this is my first photo of one. Click on the image to see some of his yellow rump.
When it started drizzling, we zipped up my Canon EOS Rebel (with the zoom lens,) in Charles' water-proof jacket. As soon as it was tucked away, a couple of brown pelicans showed up. Go figure. At least I still had my Canon PowerShot A570IS in my pants pocket.
