If you could order up a day weather wise, this would be it. Beautiful weather and a bounty of birds. It has been one of those which way do I look first days. More Northern Parula joined in the already numerous birds checking out the memosa tree today. I would guess this one is either a female of first year male. There were about a half dozen Parula in the tree at one time.
Lots of butterflies out today and most are beginning to look a little ragged. Most have tears or missing parts of the wings. They are so beautiful it is sort of sad to see them at the end of the season looking so ragged and washed out.
I am still in amazement at the numbers of White-eyed Vireos that are in the are right now. In tree after tree they were sounding out. More Redstarts have arrived. I ocassionally see a male but more females of at least they are more in the open.
