Mostly of a Swamp Sparrow

Seems like I should have some deep thoughts to go along with a title like that, but I'm not sure they're going to be forthcoming.  It feels like spring is accelerating very rapidly and will suddenly be past us.  Enjoying moments is important.  I spent a decent amount of time today questing after bitterns/pelicans/longspurs/meadowlark recordings.  It would have been rewarding had I found one of those birds.  The less goal-directed serendipity of an unexpected Waterthrush, or the first Swampie song of the year was maybe more what I should have focused on.

Some of the woodland flowers have been spectacular this year.

One of these years I'm going to start at Warren Woods (where the above Spring Beauties and Trout Lilies were taken) and just stake out a morning lit patch and wait for a bird to pose next to one. 

Or maybe I'll photoshop in a White-throat.

This Bellwort is from today

Long hours for the next 3 days, we'll see how the woods have changed next time I'm out.
