This morning I went to Mead Gardens to participate in the Orange Audubon Society's bird walk. They put one together every spring and fall during migration times. I only had about 45 minutes to be with them, but about 5 minutes of my time there made it entirely worth while. We found a Canada Warbler--a beautiful male. Most of us had a pretty good look at it, but it was pretty far away, so my photo isn't as great as I would like (the head's a little blurry). But it's a life bird for me, and it may well be years before I see one again.
I picked up my son and we went to Central Winds so he could exercise (he's preparing for a 5k race next week). I walked around the park to see what I could find. We found nothing extraordinary. The best find was a Chestnut-sided Warbler. Other warblers we saw were Ovenbird, Black-and-white Warbler, American Redstart, Northern Parula, Yellow Warbler, Palm Warbler, Yellow-throated Warbler, Prairie Warbler.
