The light of the setting sun was great for bird photography the last couple nights down in Mud Lake Park at the Mississippi River. Another candidate that will strike off soon towards the tropics is the Eastern Wood-Pewee. This one here is probably a juvenile because you can still see some black on its otherwise yellow lower mandible. The pewee prefers an exposed perch to capture prey. This flycatcher returns quite often to the same perch and gives the photographer sometimes more than one chance to capture the image.
