Warbler City!

We went for a walk at Thickson Woods Sunday and there were just tons of Warblers. I caught a few in some (not so fantastic) photos. Some first sightings for us, like the Bay Breasted Warbler.

Lots of Orioles and Warblers there - Cape May Warbler, Yellow Rumped Warbler, Yellow Warbler, Pine Warbler, and Magnolia Warbler.

Another exciting first for us was spotting a Northern Parula, though the photo, with a blurred Chickadee below, was the best I could get.

There were tons of American Redstarts as well, hanging amongst the Warblers.

We also were lucky enough to discover a Robin's nest at almost eye level. It is amazing how vulnerable the spots they choose for their nests seem sometimes. We looked for a few minutes then left as it seemed the Mom was wanting to feed them but was too wary of us. The babies were already sprouting some feathers and looked not new born by any means.
