Yesterday morning, after a series of bird walks being rained out by this incredibly wet spring, I finally led an Oak Park Bird Walk! Before we get to that though, I must include some pictures of a very quality yard bird that visited two days ago: a YELLOW-BELLIED FLYCATCHER!
The bird walk yesterday was great!
More YELLOW-BELLIED FLYCATCHERS were in the area, including this one:
Its considerably less common cousin, the PHILADELPHIA VIREO, was nice to see:
The poppies in my front yard are blooming beautifully:
And yet another uncommon vireo species, specifically for this late in migration, was a BLUE-HEADED VIREO:
And a crowd pleaser, the female BLACKBURNIAN WARBLER:
It was a great walk! Bird-of-the-day to the Philadelphia Vireo for yesterday.
Stay tuned and good birding!
