Eagle Creek and Nutty Birder's 500th Post

This morning Eric and I birded at Eagle Creek Park. We were expecting a good amount of migrants based on the weather last night and it looked like we were in for a show when we first arrived at the marina. Unfortunately the large flock disappeared pretty quickly and we were left to search the park for more migrants. While birding I was able to take some photos of a few warblers. The photos are not great but they do show both Blackpoll and Bay-breasted Warblers in fall plumage.

We ended the day with 70 species total including 16 warblers.

I also just realized that our last post, Thrush Identification Quiz, was our 500th post on Nutty Birder. We have been blogging here since August 2008 and we are still going strong! We can't wait to keep providing our readers with awesome information about birds and birding!
