No time to post but the west coast and the panhandle look good for today. Good luck and good birding to all.

  2. I ran into a nice feeding flock in one of my neighbor’s back yards this morning but the rest of the neighborhood was quiet, perhaps because of the nail guns and a roof replacement going on. In my neighbor’s back yard I had the following.

    8) Palm Warbler
    8) Yellow-rumped Warbler
    1) Yellow-throated Warbler
    1) Tennessee Warbler
    1) Black-and-White Warbler
    1) Common Yellowthroat
    1) Yellow-throated Vireo
    1) Blue-headed Vireo

    All of our customers were closed for Good Friday so we took the afternoon off and went to the new Eagle Lake Park in Largo Florida between 1:45 and 3:15. While Migrants were scarce during our quick tour through the park, there is plenty of potential and some good birds were seen.

    1) Bald Eagle ( adult )
    1) Red-tailed Hawk
    1) Broad-winged Hawk
    8) Wood Duck ( a female and 7 chicks )
    2) White-eyed Vireo
    2) Northern Parula ( singing at the south end of the park )
    2) Palm Warbler
    1) Yellow-rumped Warbler
    2) Canada Goose

  3. Hey Everybirdy,

    Quick notes. Stunning male Hooded Warbler within the first 100 yards of boardwalk at Rotary Park was reported twice but still eludes me. At least a dozen each Black and Whites and No. Parulas if not, more.
    Only heard one Blue-headed Vireo today, 2 White-eyed Vireos. Finally got sights on Northern Waterthrush i’d heard all day yesterday, still hanging around north side of boardwalk just off Nature Center area, heard another back by the willows along boardwalk. Far less Yellow-rumped than yesterday.
