Another great Warbler Walk

We had another lovely day for a warbler walk, and 43 species, not even counting the peacocks and peahen that were perched up high at the zoo!


Many people got to see this pair of flickers mating--here they are sitting about. You can't tell for sure if the male is smoking a tiny cigarette behind that trunk.
These two male cowbirds were spending quite a bit of time displaying to the female. As with most female cowbirds, she seemed attracted to both.
Green-winged Teal!

  1. Hi Laura, I'm sorry I missed your warbler walk but was happy to see the variety of birds you saw. I'll keep my eye out for them as well. Wanted to tell you that I saw a Rose Breasted Grosbeak on Wedensday,the 9th, on Park Point. He was SO beautiful. Also found a Yellow Crowned Kinglet dead and of course Fox Sparrows. We also have a Coyote on the Point this Spring. Isn't nature wonderful?!!
