Around #104

You do not need to walk far out the back door of the nature center at Audubon's Francis Beidler Forest to see migration in action as there is plenty happening around #104.

Although only the male Hooded Warbler (Setophaga citrina) below stayed close enough for a picture, he was joined by a Black-throated Blue Warbler (Setophaga caerulescens), a Worm-eating Warbler (Helmitheros vermivorus), a Veery (Catharus fuscescens), both sexes of American Redstart (Setophaga ruticilla), a Northern Parula (Setophaga americana), and a Black-and-white Warbler (Mniotilta varia).

Nearby some color was added by a Purple Lobelia (Lobelia elongata)...

and a fruiting Jack-in-the-Pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum).
