Belle Isle migration and more

What a beautiful day it was today!  Really a great day to be out birding. Because of our cold and wet April this is the first early May migration that I can recall in awhile where the trees have not been fully leafed. The birds are more visible in the still just budding trees.  What a treat. Thirteen warbler species and many more for the morning.

Wood Duck

Gray Catbird - comical pose of the singing bird.

White-crowned Sparrow

Tree Swallow - love is in the air.  Wonderful  color on
these birds.
