Just two months before this on 11/10/15 I photographed my first Rock Wren (pending 12th state record) in Missouri behind a bait shop on Hwy 123 in Polk County in western Missouri. Guess what? One now shows up on the eastern side of the state at Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary. It was originally found in the fenced in maintenance area and then below the spillway. This one is a pending 13th state record.
A few of the birds seen, complete set and larger sizes in gallery.

I'm just an amateur that loves to capture the beauty around us. Nothing escapes me, be it bugs, animals, especially birds, landscapes, sunsets, infrared or macros, if it’s moving or not. After retiring from the Aerospace industry after 40 years I've been able to concentrate on birding and photographing them.
Please feel free to browse my many galleries.
