Central Winds Park, 8/31/2013



I went to Central Winds again this morning. I needed to be home a little early, so I decided to stay local. I think I startled an while it was eating its fish. We saw each other at the same time; I stood still, but it decided to take off anyway. And a young was soaring above the trees. I don’t often see them here.

There was nothing new there this morning by way of migrants, seven warblers: Ovenbird, American Redstart, Northern Parula, Black & White, Yellow, Yellow-throated and Prairie Warbler. I’m really hoping to get a Blue-winged Warbler and soon.

I took a little time to photograph some of the butterflies and damselflies that were there: in particular, a and a Rambur’s Forktail Damselfly.
