Continuing with the results of my birding in Florida. We went to CREW Rookery , a wild-life preserve southeast of Ft. Myers. It starts as a boardwalk over a marsh and then changes into a raised dirt trail through the marsh and had great luck in spotting warblers. For classic warblers we found a Northern Parula (Setophaga americana), a Black-throated Green Warbler (Setophaga virens),a Black and White Warbler (Mniotilta varia), a Common Yellowthroat (Geothlypis trichas), and a Yellow-throated Warbler (Setophaga dominica). The last two were new birds for me!

We also saw two kinds of vireos, the White-eyed Vireo (Vireo griseus) and the Blue-headed Vireo (Vireo solitarius).

Finally, throughout our walk we kept hearing the cries of the Red-shouldered Hawk (Buteo lineatus). I caught this pair in a tree as we walked out of the preserve.

These are beautiful and sensitive photos. Thank you!
I love that top photo especially. The Northern Parula in those slim leaves.
Loved that one, too. The way bird is framed by the leaves buy clearly visible, quite neat!
Beautiful photos Paul!
Wonderful warblers (and others). Florida sure has a lot of nice birds (and reptiles).
A blue-headed vireo sounds like the kind of insult one of P.G. Wodehouse’s boulevardiers might toss at his competition after a night of debauchery. Pretty bird, though.
The white-eyed vireo appears to have eye whites like humans have. Some birds have white around the actual eye, but this guy has human-like eye whites surrounding an iris–right?
