Yesterday, in the backyard along with heavy traffic of White-throated
Sparrows, I was pleased to spot White-crowned and Harris’s, and a Lincoln’s
Sparrows. Saw a Blue-headed Vireo, 8 orioles in one spot on the other side
of the creek, 8 species of warblers with Yellow-throated, Wilson’s, Magnolia
the best and the actual orange crown of an Orange-crowned Warbler.
This morning, in between showers, I saw a Northern Parula at eye-level (our
house is a little higher than the floor of the Clive Greenbelt behind us.)
It has been 10 years since I have seen a Northern Parula here at home.
After yesterday's Yellow-throated Warbler and today's Northern Parula, what
will tomorrow bring?
The warblers and sparrows are feeding mostly in elms and hackberries. Our
backyard borders the Clive Geenbelt along Walnut Creek.
