  1. Matheson service road this morning had low numbers, but interesting variety. 3 Vireo species, Yellow-throated, Black-whiskered, Red-eyed, in the same tree! This is a first for me. Warblers: Swainson’s, N. Waterthrush, Worm-eating, Redstart, Prairie, Ovenbird. There were at least 3 Yellow-throated Vireos.

  2. I’ll be searching the whole area this afternoon for sure!

  3. A short, wet walk around the Mangrove Bay Neighborhood produced 9 warblers, of which I was able to ID 4. The persistent rain and heavy overcast made picking out birds through the canopy quite difficult. I will try to get back out later if possible,

    Prairie Warbler ( adult male )
    Yellow Warbler ( adult male )
    Cerulean Warbler ( adult female )

  4. Thanks for the feedback you guys, hope to see more post on the site when things really heat up. The site will function much better if we had more ground truth on the birding conditions. We would spend more time out there but the radar takes a large chunk out of our morning leaving us no time to bird. =-( At least we can provide an awesome way to look at migration for all of you Birders out there.
