Nothing New, Just Improved

I was unable to find any new birds to photograph for the year. I searched unsuccessfully for Lapland Longspurs and Snow Buntings previously reported around MSU. So, I moved to Fenner to enjoy the continuing Townsend's Solitaire. I found the bird and started taking pictures.

As luck would have it, Eastern Bluebirds were enjoying the sunshine along the edge of the field. They would fly down to the thawing ground to feed.

Both of these pictures were taken by digiscoping. I'm absolutely loving the camera combined with my scope, as long as the bird isn't too far away.

More birding tomorrow. Hopefully more photos, too.
