Now that I’m back to work I’ll have to juggle birding with all the normal stuff like family, laundry and shopping etc… Today I manged to go to Boynton Beach Inlet and also to a little natural area that is smack dab in the middle of an industrial complex.
The Beach had 5 species of Gull including half a dozen Greater Black-backed Gulls. Sanderlings and Ruddy Turnstones were the only shorebirds so I didn’t stay long.
I decided to head North towards Lake Worth along A1A and saw a small sandbar in the intercostal. I jumped out and snapped a series of the entire sandbar to look at when I got home. There were Black-bellied Plovers, Dowitchers and a lone Dunlin (year bird #108).
I did some shopping and then stopped to bird a little more. I found this little spot 3 years ago. It is the back-end of a Condo Complex and butts up to an Industrial Complex. There are a couple of lakes and the trees surrounding them have always held good birds.
Today I had a good number of Palm Warblers including a stunning, brightly colored Eastern Palm (missed the picture) and this singing Yellow-throated Warbler. (#109).
Two new year birds in an hour or so of looking … sweet! You can see pictures of all 109 birds I’ve photographed this year in Palm Beach County here. As always thank you for the visit!
