Eagle Creek Migrants

Rob writes: Last Sunday, Steph and I decided to meet up with some friends to do a little birding at Eagle Creek Park. After checking the marina, which had very few birds, we moved on to the Skating Pond. It seems that this is where all of the birds were hanging out! We very quickly found a Virginia Rail which was a lifer for one of the young birders with us!

We ended up making a couple of laps around the pond and Found a bunch of warblers and other migrants! While several of us were hiking around, Steph took my camera and was able to get some great shots of several different species!

Blue-gray Gnatcatcher
Prairie Warbler
Ruby-crowned Kinglet - I love the raised crest!

Wow, awesome photos! That Ruby-crowned Kinglet with the raised crest is really impressive; I don't think I've ever seen one with that much crest showing.

P.S: Btw, I love your photo quizzes :)
