Recap - Rainbow Springs
Some people just don't let a little shower stop them. Apparently 10 plus 2 decided that" into each life a little rain must fall." It didn't turn out as bad as was predicted from the weather station and the radar image. It just sprinkled for the period that we were there which was a little over two hours. Thank you Julie for calling me and alerting that some avid birders had shown up. Julie led the group until I arrived. We were hoping to see the Barred Owl that I had spotted earlier in the week, but we only heard the call. We did hear or spotted Red-eyed, White-eyed and Yellow-throated Vireos. Northern Parulas were abundant. It was difficult to see color as most of the smaller birds were high in the canopy. The list of 28 species seen or heard is at this eBird link. The photo of the Barred Owl is the one I took earlier in the week from its perch near the Butterfly Garden.
