I took the scope out this evening to readjust the Digidapter™. After a summer of bashing it around in the field some adjustments were needed. It was nice to take a photo or two of the Black-capped Chickadee as it came to the feeder just 10 feet away. Fall colors are starting to appear!

Thanks to Tom Kemp and the Toledo Naturalist Association for allowing me to tag along at their Sparrow Search at Metzger Marsh and at Krause & Stange Rd. We managed to see a couple of Lincoln's Sparrows, tons of White-throated Sparrows, a female Indigo Bunting, White-crowned Sparrow, Song Sparrow, and Swamp Sparrow. A Blackpoll Warbler and Magnolia Warbler was a nice addition. Our best looks of the day came when a pair of Northern Watersnakes were found along the canal just north of the Krause / Stange Rd. intersection. This one was pointing directly at us, while the other had its tail to us.
