Although I started this blog in late April, I intended to post all the birds seen in April first. However, I seem to be posting the most recent "cool bird" we've seen.
So the chronology is going to be a little off. Especially today because I can't resist posting these pictures of a Cape May Warbler that we saw yesterday morning (May 3) in Grant Park. Its coloring is so interesting - with its reddish cheeks, bright yellow highlights and dark stripes.
Its tinny seet-seet-seet-seet-seet call attracted us to this tree (not that we knew WHAT we were looking for until after we found it). And after about 50 photos of it with its head in the flowers, it finally rewarded us by posing out in the open.
