Blue Ridge Parkway 4/30/11

All photos are Marshall Faintich


Today's objective was to see different species of warblers, and there are a few good spots along the first 14 miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway. I met Vic L. there, and he had arrived about an hour earlier than I did, so his list of warblers sighted this morning includes some that I did not see. But I am not complaining. I saw a Canada Warbler (one of my target birds for this morning), several American Redstarts, Worm-eating Warblers, several Chestnut-sided Warblers, a couple of Yellow-rumped Warblers, a Kentucky Warbler, and I heard a few Hooded Warblers. I also saw a fair number of non-warbler bird species. All in all, a great morning on the parkway.
