The early migrants

Image result for clip art yellow warblerMy apologies for not getting the birders name but while conversing with her during my work day at Butterfly Meadow, she mentioned seeing three YELLOW WARBLERS at the Lullwater Cove platform this morning. Though unverified if they are prospect breeders or fledglings, Yellow warblers are renown kicking off early their "fall " migration , starting in late July. Either way, breeder or migrant, fall is in its early stages... ( Plumb beach yesterday had great shorebird diversity for example..)

Later in the early afternoon as I was weeding the cove, a GREEN HERON flushed from one tangle to the cove opposite shore...I guessed I spooked it...
