I cut through the forest and was pleasantly surprised to see a Mourning Cloak in spite of the lack of sunshine!
The nesting boxes halfway back on the property were both busy.
This was my first warbler sighting of 2015! They are so beautifully and brightly colored in the spring migration, and I saw 2 or 3 of these beautiful Palm Warblers. Nice to see them again, and I look forward to seeing more warblers in the coming days!
looking very dapper
That Northern Mockingbird was fun to watch. It was sort of lifting and outstretching both its wings, then dropping them, and then repeating it again, as it walked on the ground. One theory behind this behavior is that it throws a shadow on the ground that makes insects move. It's pretty interesting to watch! Some day I will get it in a photo!
