Migration is well under way, but the warblers continue to evade me. I’ve been lucky enough to find a few interesting migrants, but others are finding pockets of warblers that I’m not.
I got out to some old spots in the last few days, and birds were relatively scarce in general. It’s still relatively early, though, so I may get lucky soon. In the meantime I’ll settle for the few good birds that came my way.
I found this Tricolored Heron at CBEC this morning. It’s rare for this time of year.
Green Herons are noisy birds who will announce their presence if alarmed.
A small flock of Least Sandpipers was foraging at Terrapin.
I found this Veery at Truxtun Park. A rare bird for me.
I didn’t see many Red Eyed Vireos last year.
This Swamp Sparrow was at Governor Bridge.
My only good warbler so far this year, a male Magnolia Warbler.
The Black Billed Cuckoo is somewhat threatened. They nest north of here. I’ve only seen two of these birds, and the other was at Governor Bridge, a hundred yards from this one.
