With the exception of a couple of days of sunshine, gray skies seem to be the rule. Very disappointing with the number of birds coming through and the number of missed or poor shots due to low light.
Just a few minutes before it came by, I had just spotted a Northern Parula stopping by to get some water.

Earlier a female Summer Tanager dropped by for a bath but I believe this is a younger bird than the other female Tanager that has been coming by every afternoon. The look was completely different than the older bird.

I have been hearing an Eastern Wood Peewee over the last several days and finally this afternoon with all the bird activity, it could not resist coming in for a look.
The American Redstarts have been great for the last two weeks. The bright orange of the male's catches your eye so quickly. I have really enjoyed seeing them.
Earlier in the week the Cooper's Hawk showed back up. It has been hanging around the yard trying to find food. The birds have been a bit spooky because the hawk has been very active.
