I was told this is a Tennessee Warbler. It looks like it from my Stokes Birding Guide.
If so, it’s a lifer for me.
White eyed vireo singing in the morning.
He was chirping away.
This was my last indigo bunting sighting of the season. These were taken in mid-April.
I saw this guy for a flash of a second so this was all I got. It was the only time I saw a hummingbird at the feeder during all of those trips to the park this spring.
Swallowtail on the flowers.
This guy was jumping around while we were trying to take pictures of the bunting.
This has been a long drawn out migration season. Last spring there were tons of birds in two weekends and then nothing. This spring it’s been a small handful of birds each weekend starting at the end of March and fizzling out near the end of April. I saw a few new birds this spring and met a ton of new people. It’s amazing the bird traffic at Fort Desoto. People come from all over the country during April for a “bird vacation”. Most of the travelers I spoke with were hitting parks all around Florida. At least at Fort Desoto, when you walk out of the woods, you’re on the beach and your “bird vacation” can become a few hours of a “beach vacation”.
