Today was another of the spring walks with AMNH, and this one was very satisfying, warbler-wise. On my way to meet the group I saw a few yellow-rumps and palms, do I figured it would be a good day. And it was!
One lone night heron in what I have come to think of as the night heron tree. If this trend continues, that name won't last. But look how cute! It looks sort of between juvie and adult plumage, and a little sleepy. :-)

There were a few fancy sparrows, swamp sparrows in several locations, chipping at the feeders, and a song sparrow on my way out. And hermit thrushes were everywhere. Like, really, everywhere. And still plenty of ruby-crowned kinglets. But the focus for me today was - warblers! We saw lots of palm warblers.
