Every time I visit this place I can't help but wonder why they couldn't decide if the Econ State Forest was little or big. But what I have decided for myself is that I love this place, and I can't believe I've neglected it my first two years birding in Florida. This morning was pretty fun. Great Crested Flycatchers are moving back into the area, and I photographed my first of the year this morning. Warblers were also fun. I found seven this morning: Ovenbirds, Black and White Warblers, Northen Parula, Palm Warblers (including one "yellow" variety), Pine Warblers, Yellow-rumped Warblers, and a Yellow-throated Warbler. I've seen Black and White Warblers occasionally throughout the winter, but their numbers seem to be increasing right now. I heard several White-eyed Vireos and two Red-eyed Vireos, and the Red-eyed Vireos were the first I've seen this year.

Wonderful shots! Seems like Spring is busting out all over based on the numbers and colors of all the birds we're seeing out there!ReplyDelete
