Yellow-throated Vireo

Yellow-throated Vireo at Six-mile Cypress Slough

More and more reports are coming in about migrants coming into Florida. In the Fort Myers area we are often by-passed by the great numbers and variety of warblers, thrushes. etc that invade the more noted migrant traps like the Tampa Bay area and Dade County.  But we do manage to locate few good ones. 

This afternoon I checked out Six-mile Cypress Slough and had a few hits.  Not very birdy but I did find a Prothonotary Warbler, an American Redstart and a Yellow-throated Vireo, plus the usual local Carolina Wrens and Tufted Titmice. On a visit last week meet a photographer who claimed to have seen hummingbirds and a barred owl, but I could not find them then or today.

Below are a few pics from other recent birding trips
