The Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge has a bird walk every Wednesday. This week they had a very nice assortment of birds with one really nice one (you can see the post of the sightings here). The Louisiana Waterthrush is a difficult bird to find in South Florida. It Winters here but because of it’s foraging technique it must be the king of skulkers.
Today I thought I’d invest a little of my day searching for this guy and whatever else might pop up. I was unexpectedly blessed with the company of Bill K , Linda F , Ruth and Cheryl L. We saw an even 50 species of birds including this beauty.
I was so excited about this find because I never expected to see one this year. This was a Life Bird for both Linda and Ruth and a County Bird for me, so much for Friday the 13th!!
I also got pictures of American Robin and Ruby-crowned Kinglet today, which along with the Waterthrush puts my year total at 112.
I’m finding it a little harder (with work) to keep my Flickr page up to date so it may be a couple of days in between updating the Year Bird set. Thanks for visiting!
