South Florida had quite a bit of rain for my days off but I still managed to get out and bird. This morning I went to Spanish River Park in Boca Raton. I had a lot of hope that the heavy overnight rain might have deposited some weary migrants. There were birds around but it was hard work putting much of a list together and the weather was not conducive for picture taking. I did see two new birds for the year but did not manage a picture of either one. I saw 2-3 Worm-eating Warblers and a beautiful male Rose-breasted Grosbeak.
It began raining again so I called it quits and waited till 3:30 or so till I could finally get back out. I went to my old standby, Green Cay Wetlands. It was still drizzling and there were only a couple of cars in the parking lot! I’m sure glad I did come back out as I managed to finally get a picture of a Worm-eating Warbler. It’s not a fabulous shot but is certainly a capable ID shot!
Thank you so much for taking a look at my blog. You can see pictures of all 175 species I’ve photographed this year on my Flickr page here.
