Bird Walk at Ladew Gardens

Twelve of us had a good time in perfect weather to bird Ladew this morning, and Ladew was birdier than normal (the Nature Walk in the back). Some of the birds below, with highlights in caps (46 species total):

Warblers (9):

Black-and-White (1)
Yellowthroat (x)
Redstart (5)
Parula (1)
Magnolia (5)
Chestnut-Sided (1)
Black-Throated Blue (3)
Black-Throated Green (7, too bad they didn't sing this fall)

PURPLE FINCH (1, found by Kye J.)
Bald Eagle (1, adult)
Hairy Woodpecker (1)
White-Eyed Vireo (1, heard)
Ruby-Crowned Kinglet (1)
Scarlet Tanager (2)
RB Grosbeak (1)
Afterwards, we enjoyed an outdoor lunch at the Cafe and birded there a bit, too--and got the eagle there.

Best Birding Wishes,

Our walk was enhanced by the beautiful goldenrod
Fantastic "rock snake"

Near the café
The butterfly house is closed for the season, but you can peer in from the outside.
