  1. Wish I had more to report. Really, I wish I did. This morning on the east side of Matheson all I could find was:

    Redstart – 1
    Ovenbird – 1
    Prairie (heard) – 1
    Blue-headed Vireo – 1

  2. I birded Dagny Johnson Key Largo Hammock Botanical State Park from 7:45 am to 10:45 am.

    Birds were certainly numerous at Dagny – maybe not the greatest variety – but the overall numbers certainly kept me busy and enthralled:

    My first bird was a Mangrove Cuckoo. MACUs kept calling from various locations in the park until about 10 am, some of the calls were very distant, but I did have a close encounter – and no tapes were played (by me).

    There were dozens of warblers wherever I turned. The Pigeon Plums are in full bloom, and abuzz with insects and feeding warblers of several species including:

    Cape May Warbler (numerous – dozens)
    Blackpoll Warbler (very many, mostly male)
    Northern Parula (plentiful)
    Prairie Warbler (plentiful and very vocal)
    Black-and-white Warbler (nice to see plenty – and singing)
    Black-throated Blue Warbler
    Worm-eating Warbler (numbers seemed to pick up later in the morning)
    Palm Warbler
    American Redstart (few)
    Common Yellowthroat (interesting to see migrants feeding up in trees with other species)
    Ovenbird (few)
    Yellow Warbler (1)
    Northern Waterthrush (1)

    Other species included:
    Baltimore Oriole
    Brown-headed Cowbird
    Indigo Bunting
    Northern Cardinals – everywhere
    White-eyed Vireo
    Blue-headed Vireo
    Northern Catbird

    and more!!!!

    Best to all
