Common Yellowthroat
I went to Orlando Wetlands Park [gallery] this morning with a friend, and it was great to see the warblers returning there.  It's always a pleasure to see a Common Yellowthroat, and there were several there this morning.  I saw one adult male and several females and juveniles. I also saw a juvenile Purple Gallinule and two Roseatte Spoonbills.   But I think my favorite part of the day was watching one particular Snowy Egret in action. Every once in a while, we'd see waves of small fish jumping out of the water to escape larger fish. When they did, the Snowy Egret would fly over the wave of small fish and pick one out of the water while flying.
