Here is a better cropped photo of Northern Wheatear being seen last two days at Peckham Farm, URI, in Kingston, R.I. off rte. 138. The bird has been sitting on farm equipment in the back fields on the south and west side of field both sitting up on the farm equipment, or down on the turf. I would suspect there would be other birders also in the area looking for the bird. My second sighting of this rare bird in our state, as much as a thrill as the first time…..
EQUIPMENT USED: canon t3i camera, TV setting 1/750 sec., opened up 1 1/2 stops, ISO 400, N. white balance
