Florida Pt. 2

On my second day in Florida, we went to Wakodahatchee Wetlands, a boardwalk in a marsh. Within feet of the entrance to the boardwalk we saw black and white-warbler on a tree so close to us that I could almost touch it.
A Purple Gallinule was the next interesting bird we saw. These look like common moorhens, but are more colorful.
The boardwalk also crossed bits of dry land, and these had many palm and yellow-rumped warblers.A yellow rump.
A palm warbler.
A pine warbler, I believe. I thought it was interesting that I was more interested in seeing the warblers that I would see in Missouri in a month anyway than looking at the shorebirds you can only see in Florida.That's all for this part. Check back for part 3!
