Well, we all made it through in one piece, with only a few minor embarrassing incidents. The birding on dry land this morning was much better than on the open ocean yesterday. I got one state bird (LBHE) and saw two rare birds. At the river, I finally went to see the Little Blue Herons. I should have done this ages ago, but have been too lazy for the most part. Then we all went out to the cemetery at Fort Rosencrans where a few East coast birders had just found a Tennessee Warbler and Northern Parula. We tanked on the Tennessee, but most of us got the Parula (including me). After that, We found a Baltimore Oriole cruising the Eucalyptus. Totally Chill.
A dark one and a light one. Very nice.
This is the 4th Northern Parula I've seen in my short life.
