NRF Field Trip Results!

Prothonotary Warbler 

What an amazing field trip! Any time you can get Prothonotary Warbler and Black-throated Blue Warbler during the same outing is just awesome. Plus, we got good looks at other warblers like Black-and-white, Northern Parula, Golden-winged, and Magnolia. As has been the case for the past few days, the greatest concentration of songbird activity was located around the first bridge near Century Avenue. Tree, brush, and plant vegetation is already very dense, so many birds were identified by song only. The warbler parade continues!
