Birds of Summer
My family and I were visiting friends in Southampton, Mass, and they live in a lovely, birdy hollow. On a warm, humid afternoon we could hear, but never see Wood Thrush, Veery, Red Eyed Vireos, several Scarlet Tanagers, and of course, the classic bird of summer, the Ovenbird. There were two holding their territories on either side of the stream. One stepped out to see what we were up to.
