On my way home from the Outer Banks yesterday I made a few midday stops in North Carolina and Virginia to kill some time so I would pass through NYC after rush hour. While not the best time of day, I was able to catch up with some southern passerines and a Black Bear.
Prothonotary Warblers were common with many males singing even in the heat of the day. I did happen across two family groups, one of which included three begging juveniles. A couple of Yellow-throated Warblers were also in song, as was a Kentucky Warbler and Summer Tanager. I don't get to see these species often in Connecticut, so I particularly enjoyed them.
Zebra Swallowtails, a butterfly that does not occur in CT, were also around in numbers.
