The weather was much nicer today. Although Walt Childs and I saw 29 species on the trail in 2-1/2 hours this morning, birding was fairly quiet. The best birds were a Baltimore Oriole, and Red-eyed and White-eyed Vireos.
Great Blue Heron
Juvenile Field Sparrow
Juvenile Chipping Sparrow
The most interesting birds were a Carolina Wren and a Northern Mockingbird. The wren was perched high in a tree singing one of its loud and repetitive songs, and not a hint of its buzzy alarm call. The mockingbird landed in the tree above the wren, starting singing the wren's alarm call until the wren flew away, and then the mockingbird started singing the wren's song. I wonder how the mockingbird knew the wren's alarm call, or if it were just a coincidence??
