It’s now that time of year I’ve been dying for… the time where I can step outside and see 20 species of birds before I even start hiking. Migration is kicking into high gear, I’m bringing it to you one bird at a time.
The morning forecast called for mostly sunny skies, but it was anything but that for a majority of the day. It ruined beautiful looks at several warbler species, including a rare pair of migrating wilson’s warblers in the parking lot. I have only seen this species once a year since 2010, so imagine my surprise to see two in a single day and as the first bird of the day!
And it was only the beginning…
With every turn, I saw something exciting to photograph. I did my best to capture what I could with the limited light. I really lucked out with my only sighting of a black-throated green warbler for the weekend, and I fully capitalized on it. Enjoy the photos!
