I went to Lake Lotus this morning. It was a pretty slow morning for birds. I did find four warbler species, though: a Yellow-throated Warbler, a Louisiana Waterthrush, a Northern Parula, and several American Redstarts. I also found an Eastern Kingbird, which is the first I've seen in Seminole County. Since birding was somewhat slow, I turned my attention to butterflies, spiders, bugs and flowers. Zebra Longwings are my favorite butterflies, and Monarchs are always nice to find. Golden Silk Orbweavers are plentiful there--they are fun to see if their webs are not spread over your path. I also found one Katydid, and I think it's very young--it's wings are extremely small, and one of its legs appears not to be fully formed yet.

Nice! Yellow-throated is a beautiful Warbler! And one that doesn't get as much recognition as it should. Thanks for sharing and raising Yellow-throat awareness.ReplyDelete
