Here’s the fifth photo in the hummingbird series. Here’s another one I got when I was watching the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds at the thorn bushes at the Dolce Center in Norwalk, Conn. I like the tongue sticking out.
You didn’t really think the Scarlet Tanager posts would stop at two, did you? Here’s a little video I put together on this brilliant New England bird …
Here are the final photos in the series Birds at the Birdbath. It’s not the most exciting photo so I’ve included in this post a few older birdbath photos I’ve taken over the years.

Here’s a White-breasted Nuthatch visiting my feeder in fall 2015. In this web format, it appears fairly small, but it’s a neat photo when seen at a larger size.
Photo No. 2 of the birdbath series.
Eastern Phoebes are early migrant arrivals, showing up in early March to New England. This one visited the bath in mid-March.
Just realized I never posted these extra Green Heron photos. Here are some bonus photos from a previous posting about Green Herons.
Here’s a few more of the Blue-winged Warbler. See the post below for more information about the photos.
Here’s one more photo of the Palm Warbler, which was the subject of my longer post yesterday.
He strikes an interesting pose here. Any help with the caption?

Here’s one more shot of the Saffron Finch I saw the other day while playing baseball with my son Will. See the previous post for more information.
At least I think it’s a Saffron Finch. That ID came from a birding expert friend of mine and many agree with him. Some, however, feel it is a finch from Africa. At any rate, it’s likely an escaped pet and not a wild rare bird for New England.
I thought I had a great bird for the rare bird alert list, but it’s likely just an escaped pet bird. A bright yellow bird flew into a nearby tree as I was practicing baseball with my 9-year-old Will.
I thought it was a Yellow Warbler at first, but rushed for my binoculars for a better view. Yellow Warblers don’t have red heads! I thought it was one of the tanagers, but after consulting with an expert, it is likely a Saffron Finch. These colorful birds are native to South America and are often kept as caged pet birds. That’s likely the case here. Instead of a rarity, I got an escapee.
Thanks Frank for the ID.
Do other experts out there concur?
