I birded the woods at LaFitte's Cove in Galveston from 5:30 - 7:30pm this evening.
There were good numbers of warblers seen or reported.
The highlight was a male Black-throated Blue Warbler at the drip at 7:20pm. It had been seen earlier in the day as well.
Others were Tennessee, Blue-winged, Golden-winged, Nashville, No. Parula, Yellow, Chestnut-sided, Cerulean, Magnolia, female Cape May, Black-throated Green, Blackburnian, Blackpoll, Bay-breasted, Black-and-white, Am. Redstart, Worm-eating, Ovenbird, Kentucky, Canada, Hooded and Common Yellowthroat for a total of 23 species!
Other migrants were Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Indigo Bunting, Orchard Oriole, Swainson's Thrush, Philadelphia Vireo.
A few photos from today...
