Last week I drove out to Mead Gardens, hoping to see a Wilson’s Warbler that had been photographed there the day before. Unfortunately, it either moved on or hid from me the whole time I was there, but that’s to be expected.
Thankfully, a few days later another Wilson’s Warbler showed up at Central Winds Park right near my home and I got to see that one.
I had two consolation prizes at Mead, though. First, and beautiful Cape May Warbler was extremely cooperative with me, posing for pictures and everything.
And second, I was able to get my first presentable photos of a Yellow-bellied Flycatcher that had been hanging out here for the last couple days. I’ve only seen three of these in Florida, and they’ve always been pretty difficult for me to photograph. But this one flew very close to me. These photos could certainly be improved with better light and background, but at the very least, they are photos I don’t mind showing to you.
