There was a sizable gathering of warblers and other migrants this
morning around the Hawkins Slang boat launch. The best highlight of
the morning for me was a male Cape May Warbler (a life bird) among a
flock of predominantly Yellow-rumpeds. Also present were at least 2
Palm Warblers (both races and both singing slightly different
songs...the Western was more chattery and less "sweet" than the
Eastern), at least 2 Nashville, 1 Pine, 1 Yellow, 1 Blue-gray
Gnatcatcher, and 1 Rusty Blackbird that offered wonderful views as it
fed on the floor of the flooded woodland.
I had a mammal first this morning as well...near Fort Cassin Road I
had a Bobcat cross in front of my car...a handsome little brute.
