This morning I drove by Mead Gardens hoping to find one of the Swainson’s Warblers that were seen there yesterday. A friend of mine was there too, and we ended up finding both Swainson’s Warblers, plus 12 other warbler species: Ovenbird, Worm-eating Warbler, Black-and-white Warbler, Orange-crowned Warbler, Common Yellowthroat, Northern Parula, Palm Warbler, Pine Warbler, Yellow-rumped Warbler, Yellow-throated Warbler, and Prairie Warbler. We also saw a waterthrush, but we did not get good enough looks at it to tell which one.
Other highlights were male Indigo and Painted Buntings, American Goldfinches, Blue-headed Vireo, Red-eyed Vireo, and Ruby-crowned Kinglets. It was also fun to see a Marsh Hare.
