Nice bird sighting

I just spotted, and identified a pair of Black-throated Green Warblers.  I’d seen them in June, but couldn’t get a good enough look to positively identify them.  This is their migratory route, so they are more than likely heading south for the winter.

Here’s a good link from the folks at Cornell University.

    Melanie,
    I clicked on this link from facebook. I think it is so cool that this is what you do. I have always been fascinated with the wildlife that exists in my very own back yard. It started with my days as a “tomboy” living across the street from Camp Mabry. There was a creek where we caught tad poles and crawdads…..and where have all the horny toads gone? I once corned a wild rabbit, but released it quickly when it busted my nose with a swift kick. I could go on and on. Squirrels, armadillos, possums, racoons, and most recently my neighbors trapped a baby fox in their backyard. I have a fondness for birds and butterflies. My mother has a couple of wood peckers in her front yard, one is stunning with a bright red head. I recently saw a bearded dragon on her front porch. Like I said, I could go on and on. Maybe one day when I’m not busy with life and grandkids we could hang out for a day. I’d love to hear your stories and see your photos.
    With great admiration, sincerely yours,
    Beth Johnson
