John James Audubon's Birthday

April 26 is John James Audubon's Birthday.  As birders, how could we not celebrate?
So Jeremy and I took the little boys out for a drive in the rain today.  Lots of rain.  But there were times when it wasn't raining as hard or stopped for a little while.  The rain and overcast skies made things fresh and beautiful.  We were able to take lots of pictures from the van.

One place had so many yellow-rumbed warblers.  Here are some of their pictures.

We saw some more familiar friends
Killdeer and White-crowned Sparrow
Swainson's Hawk

and found some new ones.
 This is a hermit thrush.

I'd say it was a successful way to celebrate John James Audubon's birthday (and we didn't even have to shoot any birds to do it).
