To Nathan Krestul Park late this afternoon.  Palm Warblers have returned for the season:

The Palm Warblers join the year-round birds, including this Great Egret:

There were Eastern Bluebirds, Red-Winged Blackbirds, and a pair of Northern Cardinals calling to each other.  Here’s the female:

This afternoon I caught a glimpse of a Black-throated Blue Warbler in the woods behind my house.  I realized that it had been a while since I’d really looked for the birds.  So I did, and saw a few more migrating birds, including a Hooded Warbler and a pair of American Redstarts.  I also saw a number of year-round residents:  Northern Cardinals, Tufted Titmice, Red-bellied Woodpeckers, Downy Woodpeckers, and Carolina Wrens.

Here’s the Black-throated Blue Warbler:
