More Little Birds at Indiana Dunes NP


My goodness, those warblers I shared in my last post were a challenge.  They don’t stay still!  Here’s sharing more of the little birds I captured at Indiana Dunes NP on the Great Marsh Trail.

I’m starting off with another bird to add to my lifer list!  πŸ’ƒ

  1. I always get the house finch and the purple finch confused. They are very similar in markings. It would be easier if the purple finch was purple.

    • I’m still hoping to see and photograph a Purple Finch some day! I read to keep in mind red versus raspberry coloring. And I so agree, wish it was purple, that would certainly be easier! πŸ™‚

  2. You were really busy in that short time period. What a great job in capturing so many different species!

  3. A lifer again Donna, you did so well on your birding expeditions. These little guys are all beautiful and a delight to behold, you have done well to capture them all πŸ™‚

  4. Congratulations! For the new lifer! How about the black-capped chickadee (Poecile atricapillus), remember that is not the Carolina Chickadee (Poecile carolinensis). I don’t see it listed as lifer. Great photos, Donna. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, HJ! I had photographed and recorded the Black-capped Chickadee several years ago, and plum forgot. Darn, I was excited to ‘add it’ as another number and then saw my records. πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you! I think that Chipping Sparrow was begging for a shot, lol. He just sat there looking at me, I kept refocusing and snapping, trying to be sure I got a good shot. Felt like he was saying, hurry up! πŸ™‚

  5. Nice to see song sparrows from another part of the country! Love these little birds. I’ve never seen a Northern Rough-winged Swallow before — congratulations, Donna! πŸ™‚
