This morning I dropped by Mead Gardens, and I had a pretty good time. Easily the biggest highlight was seeing two Louisiana Waterthrushes. These are really fun warblers, and before this morning I didn’t have any presentable photos of them. All these photos are of the second one I found, which was much more cooperative than the first. You can tell it’s a Louisiana Waterthrush instead of a Northern because if the white supercilium (eyebrow) stripe that is thick behind the eye, plain white throat with no spotting, bright pink legs, and less streaking on the chest.
Also fun to find were Northern Parula, Common Yellowthroat, Yellow-throated Warbler, and many Yellow-rumped Warbler and Palm Warblers. There were many American Goldfinches near the feeders, and one of the goldfinches was nearly in fully breeding plumage. It was also fun to see a Hermit Thrush near the Azalea bushes.
