Wine & Warblers 2013

Wine and Warblers at the Audubon Center at Francis Beidler Forest begins today at 5:00 p.m.  There are still spaces available on the later walks.  After a refreshing rain last night and this morning, the precipitation has moved off shore leaving pleasantly cool conditions for this evening's festivities!
There are plenty of warblers around the boardwalk...
Northern Parula (Setophaga americana) - Mark Musselman
Black-and-white Warbler (Mniotilta varia) - Mark Musselman
Hooded Warbler (Setophaga citrina) - Mark Musselman
Prothonotary Warbler (Protonotaria citrea) - Mark Musselman well as wading birds, like White Ibis and Yellow-crowned Night Herons.
White Ibis (Eudocimus albus) with crayfish - Mark Musselman
Yellow-billed Cuckoos (Coccyzus americanus) made their presence known this week, Ruby-throated Hummingbirds (Archilochus colubris) have returned and Barred Owls (Strix varia) never fail to make an appearance.

If you cannot make it this year, mark your calendars for April 2014!
