After another night of showers, the sun peeked out for a bit this morning. I headed out early with high hopes for a good morning of birding. The coolness of the morning hinted to the coming autumn season. Before I reached my destination clouds were already once again moving in giving the sky an overcast milky appearance.
Attempting to dry out feathers, an immature male and a female
Common Yellow-throat were hunting in the willow trees.
I was surprised that several Northern Parula were in this morning. Sure sign that migration is beginning. I hope they will stay around for a bit.
Notice the position of the hawk at the bottom of this photo. Feet up.
