So far so good

I'm in Decorah now, having a nice time. One of my targets showed itself to me in Madison, a Yellow-bellied Flycatcher. I have gotten several new ABA birds, too, and it is nice to see eastern birds we don't see in Oregon.

This is primarily a genealogical expedition, but I can look at birds when they show up. Here's a Red-bellied Woodpecker that showed up at the Phelps Cemetery in Decorah while we were there. While everyone else was admiring a civil war era headstone, I braced the camera on another monument so I could get this distant shot, using the 80X digital feature of the Canon Powershot SX20IS.

Tomorrow we get the whole morning for birding, and I think I'll check out Lake Meyer.

Good birding,
Jeff
