Besides this female American Redstart and a male, other warbler species seen were the Prairie Warbler, Northern Parula, the Common Yellowthroats I mentioned and Palm Warbler--a number of them are still hanging around. Karen and I also saw a male and female Indigo Bunting and a Northern Flicker. A Cooper's Hawk was on its nest.

I have noticed that a good percentage of images (like this one) of my Swallow-tailed Kites show them feeding on the fly. This raptor is a favorite of many nature lovers and I always enjoy the aerial show they put on. Click the image to see the prey.
Maybe the Gopher Tortoise will be one of the featured stars in the next Transformers movie.

Eli and I saw this loving couple in an unlikely spot. The location was in a hydric hammock. Eastern Bluebirds' habitat is open areas and edges next to open areas. Maybe they just wanted to come to this swamp to see how the other half lives.
