Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary - March 9, 2017

A very nice day at Corkscrew Swamp.  First, there was a yellow-breasted chat, my second ever (the first ever was at Apopka in January).  Next, I got really nice photos of a black-throated green warbler.  I would not have guessed they would be here so early.  Usually I see them at Fort de Soto at the end of April!  There were many other species along the boardwalk today too (46 species total listed on Ebird)

Yellow-breasted Chat
Black-throated Green Warbler and Yellow-bellied Sapsucker

Purple Gallinule
Pine Warbler
Blue-headed Vireo
Red-shouldered Hawk
Great Egret
Great Egret, and Spoonbill with juvenile Little Blue Heron

Ruddy Daggerwing
Just wouldn't be Corkscrew Swamp without all the gators.  I like this one's hat!
