Northern Parula
This morning on my way to work I dropped by Central Winds Park for a few minutes, just to see what I could find. A Loggerhead Shrike greeted me as I drove into the parking lot.  Then there was at least a dozen Northern Parula by the play ground and a Snowy Egret by the shore of Lake Jessup.  Although I didn't get any presentable photos, I did find a Ruby-throated Hummingbird, which is the first I've seen in Seminole Co. this year. I also found 2 Black-bellied Whistling Ducks flying over Lake Jessup.
