April 19 – Texas Warbler Sampler

Finally more than a handful of warbler were around yesterday. In the afternoon at Goose Island State Park, Debra Corpora and I (and the other gathered birders) saw Nashville, Black-throated Green, Yellow-throated, Tennessee, Blue-winged (we saw after Debra and I left the group) and Blackburnian (photos), all high above us in the live oaks. We also had Red-eyed, White-throated, Warbling and Blue-headed Vireos (photo) and some folks saw a Philadelphia Vireo. We also saw the most orange Baltimore Oriole anyone had ever seen (photo).



The day before I saw a Cerulean Warbler in Port Aransas, as well as other great birds, but no time to post more than that. Debra and I are going birding shortly.
