A spring migration tease in late March.

My first sighting of the morning was a black and white warbler.

Then a hooded warbler.

Then a yellow rumpled warbler. These have been around most of the winter.

These birds are so funny they way they hang upside down most of the time.

I only saw one yellow throat warbler that morning.

Another hooded warbler?  The trees were dripping with them and they were not being shy.

One last parting hooded shot before heading home.

I think this day was “Hooded Warbler Day” at Fort Desoto. They were everywhere at the park in late March. There wasn’t much of a variety though. Just tons of the above. I had heard there was a worm eating warbler there as well but I could not find him. It would have been a first for me. I’m hoping this was just the beginning of spring migration and it doesn’t fizzle out. If the winds are favorable for the birds through April, they will just keep flying right past us without stopping for a snack.
