Today my mom and I toured the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music as part of the University of Cincinnati. We will fly back home to Chicago tonight.
We managed to go birding for a good chunk of the afternoon at a beautiful city park called Burnett Woods, where I hoped to find a Yellow-throated Warbler that had been reported there earlier today.
With cloudy, misty conditions, the birds - as expected with weather like this - were very active.
Male AMERICAN GOLDFINCH:
Male RED-TAILED HAWK:
And I found my target, a beautiful, singing male YELLOW-THROATED WARBLER! Success!
Stay tuned for more spring migration fun! Plans for this summer include a tour with my choir to Italy in July and my family's annual trip to Sun Valley, Idaho in late July though August.
