Spotter at Work

On our way back to Elkton yesterday we stopped in Cottage Grove at the Row River Nature Park, informally known as the Cottage Grove Ponds, to do some birding.  When we are birding Jeanette usually serves as the spotter.  Her sharp eyes are almost always the ones to first spot a bird, then she points it out to me, and if I get a chance I get a photo.  Here she is using a bird call on her iPod to call out a Bewick’s Wren that she spotted which disappeared in the bush.  The Bewick’s came back out to investigate as well as a Pacific Wren. Jeanette was able to hold their attention long enough that I was able to get photos of both birds.
