Mead Gardens 4/13/2013



Black-and-white Warbler

It was a pretty good morning at Mead Gardens. The biggest highlight of the morning was seeing a Yellow-billed Cuckoo, but it spent most of its time hidden, and photos were pretty much impossible. We had 11 species of warbler, though: Ovenbird, Worm-eating Warbler, Black-and-white Warbler, Common Yellowthroat, American Redstart, Cape May Warbler, Northern Parula, Black-throated Blue Warbler, Palm Warbler, Pine Warbler, and Prairie Warbler. Palm and Yellow-rumped Warblers were all but gone (I saw two Palms and no Yellow-rumped, but we found at least 10 Prairie Warblers. I’m not very happy with the next two photos, but at least they show a couple of the more interesting birds that we saw this morning.

Black-throated Blue

And it was fun also to see a Zebra Longwing Butterfly.
