Year in review: New finds in 2014 (non-odonates)

November 22, 2014

I’m an equal opportunity photographer. Although I tend to focus on photographing odonates (dragonflies and damselflies) I will photograph anything interesting that catches my eye. This retrospective features non-odonate new finds for 2014.

Palm Warbler

Palm Warbler (Setophaga palmarum)

This post features several photos of a Palm Warbler (Setophaga palmarum) spotted on 21 April 2014 during a photowalk along the gravel road between the terminus of the Hike-Bike Trail and the new observation platform at Huntley Meadows Park.

The bird’s hackles are raised in the following photo, indicating it may be angry for some unknown reason. (The idiom “get your hackles up” means “to get angry.”)

Eastern Bluebirds (Sialia sialis) and Yellow-rumped Warblers (Setophaga coronata) also were spotted in the same wooded area.
