After yesterday's brief outing in City Hall Park, it was clear I had the warbler fever. From my roof I could see small groups of birds chirping north. There was also Norman
and an egret.
In the Park, I set up in a shaded spot over-looking the local watering hole. As the more common birds built in, like this grackle,
warblers then began to move through for a cool drink!
First this common yellow throat came in for a peek.
then this parula came in for a bath!
There were many black throated blue warblers,
black throated greens,
and black and white warblers.
A few chestnut-sided warblers came by
and a redstart.
Also I caught glimpses of scarlet tanagers...the male
Last but not least, a thirsty white throated sparrow also flitted in.
In the Loch, these wonderful owls have been learning the ropes!
A parent keeps a watchful eye!
On a final note, I may still do the bird walk on Sunday. I will be in touch with all who have emailed me on Friday. Also, thanks for all the positive feedback on the bloggy!
