Queen Elizabeth Park - May 11 2013

Posted by birder on Sunday, May 12, 2013
May 4-11th was migratory bird week, and during the week birding talks, walks, and other things are held. Today, the the last day of migratory bird week, I went on a walk in Queen Elizabeth Park led by Jeremiah Kennedy.

This Mourning Cloak butterfly landed where the group could see it. What a pretty insect!

More walking turned up this Western Wood-Pewee, the first of the season for me:

It caught some flies and bees in mid air, but always came back to the same perch:

More walking turned up this female Western Tanager. It was distant and there was a harsh back light, but it was also a first of the season bird for me.

During the walk we heard but didn't see Yellow-rumped Warblers. We did get looks at Wilson's and Orange-crowned Warblers, however:

It had been a great morning of birding.


Thanks for looking!
