The Fall Warblers are back!

This morning I went bird watching with the Lehigh Valley Audubon Society in the Whitehall Parkway. Highlights included a Yellow Billed Cuckoo eating a caterpillar, Rose Breasted Grosbeaks eating poison ivy berries, a Little Green Heron fishing in the quarry, a group of Kingbirds high up in the trees, a large Great Blue Heron, a Scarlet Tanager, Goldfinches, a Hairy Woodpecker, and a Downy Woodpecker.
