This morning was the last scheduled SanCap Audubon bird walk of the season and I'm sorry to see the majority of the people returning north until next fall. I want you to know that I appreciate all that you've contributed to my learning curve in the birding world and that I'm going to miss you all...so come back soon.
In any event - this morning's walk was very well attended and exciting since migration is still taking place....take a look of some of the feathered friends that we bumped into.
|Hooded Warbler was still sighted - jumping and flitting about - what a burst of sunshine he is.|
|Only a handfull of Orchard Oriole was spotted this morning.|
|The Western Kingbird was just right in the sunlight - his yellow belly even more golden.|
|Eastern Kingbird are still plentiful.|
|Here was a nice treat - an Indigo Bunting next to a Blue Grosbeak - not something that happens very often and what a great opportunity to notice the difference between the two.|
|The Blue Jay - always nice to see around here because it is not a common sight for Sanibel.|
|More Indigo Buntings|
|A warbler whizzing by - Yellow-throated Warbler.|
|The Gray Kingbird - by itself and very stately.|
|And the White-eyed Vireo - more often heard than seen.|
