This afternoon during a break in the rains I saw a female American Redstart and a male Black & White Warbler in my back yard. I got so excited that I donned my rain jacket, swimsuit, Keen sandals and grabbed my binoculars and headed to Hammock Park. I was very curious to see what was hopping at the park. Unfortunately, I found mostly hungry mosquitoes but I did see 2 more Black & White warblers and 3 Red-Eyed Vireos. Of course, there was a lot of water on the trails so I am guessed at least the start of our fall banding will be pretty wet!
Enjoy sleeping in on Sunday mornings! Only 6 more weeks until we start our fall banding:)
