Sometimes, Doug and I enjoy going to a nearby state park and just spending the afternoon reading under a shade tree next to the lake. Of course, the camera always goes along, too. This series of photos is from last week's visit to Ouabache State Park.
(The official pronunciation of "Ouabache" is "Wabash," but the locals almost always refer to it as "Kwa-botch-ee." So you just go ahead and pronounce it any way you want to.)
A female Eastern Bluebird
A fairly large nest, but I don't know what made it.
A baby Eastern Bluebird. There was an adult sitting lower on the same branch.
Male Eastern Bluebird
Doug thought this might be a flycatcher of some sort. (Eastern Phoebe, perhaps?)
Female Eastern Bluebird
I don't know what this one is...possibly another flycatcher? (Eastern Pewee, perhaps?)
