Northern Parula

Northern Parula?

This past week I spotted a Brown Thrasher, several Tufted Titmice and a bird that I believe may be a Northern Parula.  That Brown Thrasher is the first one I have seen here in Florida!  The Titmice have been here in bunches lately.  That Chickadee is here with the Titmice as is often the case.  The bonus picture is of the Cotton-tail bunny.

I sometimes see the rabbits in the lawn areas at dusk, but mostly see the bunnies in the areas on the periphery of the development.  Too many hawks patrolling my little neighborhood now for rabbits to be out and about here.  I took these pictures here on June 11, 2015 and also on June 12, 2015.

  1. congrats on the thrasher sighting! i’ve heard they can be seen in texas but have yet to see them here. used to see them in wis. all the time. 🙂 great parula find!

    • Hi Theresa, Thanks! I was pleased to see both that Thrasher (rarely seen here) and the Northern Parula (also rarely spotted here). Have a fabulous day tomorrow!

  2. Wonderful variety of birds. I love the Parula shot and the Thrasher. The chickadees and titmouse are cute. I always love to see the bunnies! Great shots! Enjoy your day and the new week ahead!

    • Hi Eileen, Saw a huge number of Tufted Titmice in our trees this week. Mating season in full swing as evidenced by the many birds chasing after each other. Also saw a beautiful male Downy yesterday in my front yard. Pictures on Wed. Have a fine day tomorrow and thanks for your nice comments!

  3. Good to see the bunny. That’s a nice photo of him! We now have one who has taken up residence here. He sure likes the clover!

    • Hi Montucky, Nice you have a local bunny to watch and enjoy! The street I live on has hawks here now and then so no rabbits. I have to go to the far end of the development into the boonies to find rabbits. Have a fantastic day tomorrow!
