Species Count – Peach Hill Park on 05/12/12

Indigo Bunting

Luck continued to be on my side at Peach Hill Park on Saturday, with two more new birds that I had previously not photographed before.  The white-eyed vireo was the biggest surprise, and is a likely candidate for rarest bird of the year for me.
