Warblers of Paradise Pond

I have mentioned Paradise Pond in a couple of my previous posts. I was there in the spring of 2009, and would love to return in some future spring. Here is a collection of warblers that I photographed at Paradise Pond (not including the Wilson's Warbler that I shared a few posts back).

From top to bottom, the warblers are: Blackpoll, Yellow, Northern Parula, and Tennessee.

I took advantage of two excellent bird watching destinations in Port Aransas, Texas (April 2009). The first was Paradise Pond (lots of migrant song birds) and the second was Port Aransas Birding Center (lots of waders and shore birds). Both were excellent because of diversity and proximity - there were plenty of species to see, and they tended to be close.

Here are two images of Tricolored Heron taken from Port Aransas Birding Center.
