Six-Mile Cypress Slough Preserve
Headed over to Six-Mile Cypress Slough Wednesday morning to look for migrants and was lucky to met up with Walt, who is a very skilled birder. When I met him on the boardwalk he already had a pair of Hairy Woodpeckers located, which were a part of a nice mixed flock. Walt also quickly locked-on to a couple of female Blackburnian Warblers, and Northern Parula. We were able to add American Redstart, Black-and-White and a nice female Hooded Warbler. Walt reported a nice assortment of migrants found at Sanibel Lighthouse yesterday at the same time I had come up empty at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, were I did not hit on any warblers, but did get a Eastern Wood-Pewee. So following my stay at Six-Mile I headed over to Sanibel Lighthouse, but found it very quite. Only warbler was Prairie Warbler.
