I birded Ankeny NWR yesterday morning. At Eagle Marsh area on the recently opened grassy road to the small ponds I saw a male BLACK THROATED GRAY WARBLER. Beautiful breeding plumage. I watched him for a full 10 minutes. Clear yellow lore spot, white cheek stripe and white wing bars.
Many COMMON YELLOWTHROATS male and female sightings. Also got ORANGE CROWNED WARBLER, YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLER (Myrtle and Audubon's), SORA (heard), as well as usual ducks that have been there all winter (RUDDY DUCK, RING-NECKED DUCK, AMERICAN WIDGEON, NORTHERN PINTAIL, NORTHERN SHOVELER, BUFFLEHEADS, NORTHERN SHOVELER, AMERICAN COOT, MALLARD).
There were 4 MARSH WRENS having a chattering contest in the cat tails as well.
Spectacular day to be birding!
