It’s been three and a half months since I’ve photographed a new bird, but it finally happened with my first eastern wood pewee shot! There were surprisingly quite a few of them at Vassar Farm, and it only seemed like a matter of time.
That moment came two hours after I arrived, at the back pond area. Not only did I confirm the sighting by photograph, I confirmed it by song too.
This is now the 124th bird I’ve photographed in Dutchess County!
