The Palms are Back!

Yes, indeed. I missed them last year, but this year, the weedy edges of the gravel road at Lake Betz in RTP have gone unmowed and the habitat is playground for these warblers. I conservatively counted 6 Palm Warblers, but there were more. Their chips are welcoming sounds to my ears.

The female buntings engaged in flocking behavior around the bridge, “zeep-zeeping” the whole time. The Common Yellowthroats were chupping in the weed bottoms. A pair of Pied-billed Grebes graced the lakeside. A skulking Yellow Warbler posed for a photo, but only briefly before merging into the sweetgum saplings that have begun to show purple.

The rains have passed leaving us cooler, damper, grayer, and grateful for the coming Fall!!!
