Birds and bees at Chesnut Park

Some type of warbler. My first fall migration bird and I can’t tell what this is. I didn’t get a good shot of his back feathers. Any ideas?

Another view. This was the only tiny bird I saw that morning in early September.

I was driving home from the park and took the long way through a neighborhood near too far from my house to see if the eagles had come back for the winter. I had heard some of the eagles from other parks were already back. I looked over at a small pond and saw 4 kildeer in the grass. Of course I pulled over and took a couple of shots from the window. They seemed very skittish so I didn’t get out.

  1. Beautiful photos. The warbler is cute, too bad you couldn’t get the back view for ID. The hawk has such interesting markings and feather colors. I like the twisty anhinga’s neck. I do get to see Kildeer here, they seem to be everywhere, such a cute shot.
