Warbler Fest! 10-2-16

October 03, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Yesterday began very quietly, due to the presence of this Coopers Hawk for several hours. It would change locations and sit for an hour at a time with an occasional  "Kek, kek, kek." Not a bird would come out of hiding or make a peep.

A couple warblers dropped by, but soon skedaddled.  About 4:10 p.m., all was soon chaotic with many birds feeding in the pond cypress and nearby oaks.  I saw a single Blue-winged Warbler, many Black-throated Greens and Tennessees.  A few started coming to the Bubbler and the flurry of activity continued until 4:40.  Wow...it got crazy!

 

Here's one example with five species:  From top left, Carolina Chickadee, Nashville, Tennessee, Chestnut-sided and Black-throated Green Warblers.
