I had the privilege of watching this guy from the north-facing bluff on one of the inlets or coves off the east side Lake Brandt. I was walking the Nat Green Trail when I thought I saw a flash of blue below. I really wish that I had had a tripod and a 400mm lens - or binoculars! This is the best view I could get from so far away and through all the trees. After watching him for a while I tried to get closer but my movement spooked him. I post this very mediocre picture of a wonderful bird to show what sorts of delights await the hiker on our Greensboro Watershed Trails.
