This morning I went to the Econ River Wilderness Area in Seminole County. It was cloudy, and it drizzled a little, so it wasn't a great morning for photos, but I still had a pretty fun morning. I went there mostly in search of a Brown-headed Nuthatch, and thankfully I found three of them.

Along with the nuthatches, it was also fun to see Pine Warblers.  One in particular landed very close to me and sang his wonderful song.  This I think is the closest I've ever been to a Pine Warbler.

Eastern Towhees were numerous there, and it was great to photograph an adult male and a juvenile. I really enjoy these birds.

Along with these, I saw (but was unable to get good photos of) one Cooper's Hawk and four Northern Bobwhites.  I saw four with my own eyes, and heard a couple as well, but I don't know if they were the same as the ones I saw.  Here's a list of species I saw this morning.
