First sighting - Black-throated grey warbler

I spotted this Black-throated grey warbler flitting in one of the trees in the front of the house snacking on something.

He usually winters in Mexico so I'm assuming he was passing through the neighborhood.

It's not home without a heron

Herons have special meaning to me. No place ever seems quite like home without one nearby. I even have two herons tattooed on my back!

So imagine my surprise the first time I discovered a Great Blue Heron at our neighborhood pond in Redington Ranch.

This one seems to have taken up residence here. You have to have good birdar (bird radar) to spot him, but he's almost always there when I walk or drive by.
