Black-throated Blue Warbler (female)
Dottie Johnson and I decided to bird the creek corridor yesterday after work and were rewarded with 10 warbler species. We were especially thrilled to find a female Black-throated Blue Warbler just before the second bridge east of Park Street. We also got great looks at a Mourning Warbler near the first creek crossing.
The morning foraging peak is generally better than the evening one, but we did remarkably well over the course of an hour and a half. This morning we found 13 warbler species and were hoping for a repeat after work, but only found a couple warblers in the evening. The winds are stronger out of the southeast, so that probably has something to do with the absence of birds.
And tomorrow morning? One will have to go to know!
