Palm Warbler

Tuesday, November 13, 2018,

This is a Palm Warbler that I encountered at Frank Melville Park last month. Warblers have been migrating through here on their way south. This bird was staying low to the ground, searching for insects. It was zooming around, sometimes visiting small bushes but mostly zipping around patches of grass. I took lots of photographs but this bird was not staying very still anywhere it went. These are two of only three pics that were in good focus. I did, however, manage to get several great shots of empty grassy areas. Unfortunately, shots like that don’t generate much interest amongst nature lovers. Sigh. JK
