I spent 3 hours birding Loxahatchee NWR this morning. I heard the King Rail again and once again he failed to show himself. My good friend and the best birder I know, Carl Edwards has told me that in a month or two they will come right out due to mating urges.
I ran into a small feeding flock of Warblers that included a wonderful Orange-crowned Warbler. Orange-crowned used to be a nemesis for me but I’ve started to know their call and that has made locating them much easier. I managed 3 decent pictures but due to computer problems at home was unable to get them ready for the blog.
I’ll do another easy day tomorrow at Green Cay Wetlands. I On Friday (my Saturday) I’m planning on going out to Lake Okeechobee and the surrounding areas. I’m sure to find something good, so stay tuned!
