I had a great morning at Central Winds. It’s always fun to find a Chestnut-sided Warbler, but I ended up with eleven warblers. I got out of my car and had 6 warbler species in the same tree right next to my car, including two early Palm Warblers, a Black-and-white Warbler, American Redstart, Northern Parula, Yellow Warbler, and Yellow-throated Warbler.
The earliest I’ve seen a fall Palm Warbler at Central Winds is on September 24 in 2012, so these two are pretty early. A walk around the park yielded 5 more species before I left around 9am. I found several Ovenbirds, a Prothonotary Warbler, a couple Chestnut-sided Warblers, a Pine Warbler, and a few Prairie Warblers.
