We got to the Lighthouse before the sunrise and, oh, how spectacular it was to witness the bright light inch up ever so slowly and with it was a promise of another beautiful day.

The migrants were not as numerous as they had been the previous day - we walked for several hours and were rewarded with an Ovenbird, a Western Kingbird, a painted Bunting and a Chestnut-sided Warbler.

The Chestnut-sided Warbler is sporting its fall plummage of lime-green above, whitish below and yellowish wing bars. It was very busy eating insects and darting in and out of the dense bushes.

Today, I just seemed to be a bit late in capturing the 'right' photo.....somewhat feeling as if I was a step behind.....this kept up even when I arrived home and spotted Mr.Bob....only to catch his tail end.

We did get a good view when we spotted him in the back yard but by the time I got my camera, he was already on his way - marking his territory as he went about his way.
