Red-Eyed Vireo v. Katydid

   Sometimes you find a bird doing something so fascinating that you feel compelled to fire off  86 photos in 3 minutes.  This morning I did just that when I found a Red-eyed Vireo in my yard trying to eat a Angle-Wing Katydid.

   Also of interest I was able to get a photo of a Ruby-throated Hummingbird trying to catch flying insects.

      I sent a photo of the following bird to birding expert Allen Chartier and he confirmed it was a Tennessee Warbler.  The bird becomes the 120th species and 20th warbler on my backyard list.  You can follow a link to Allen's blog "Michigan Hummingbird Guy" in the right hand column under 'My Blog List' heading.
