A Northern Parula and Chanterelles
My first captures of Northern Parulas were back in January in Florida’s Everglades. I had never seen this warbler in Maryland nor Delaware, although it does breed here. Well, lo and behold, I saw a colorful flash in flight while in Delaware a week ago.
The Northern Parula’s peak migration is September to mid-October; it spends the winter months in Florida’s Everglades, Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean.
Another cool sighting were these three bright chanterelle mushrooms. Their texture and peppery flavor (some people describe as lightly fruity) makes them desirable by gourmet chefs. (I did not disturb their beauty.)
