Warblers – A Fab Four

.

We’ve left home for our summer mid-West adventure, with our first stop in Indiana.  Leaving our motorhome for its scheduled warranty appointment, we headed north to the Indiana Dunes NP and southeast side of Lake Michigan to explore a few days.

Definitely on my list was to walk the Great Marsh Trail at the Indiana Dunes NP, a trail that I’ve enjoyed very much through featured posts in HeavensSunshine blog.  Although we weren’t able to meet (I’m still bummed, Irene!), I felt like I was walking one of her post hikes with her.  šŸ™‚

I didn’t have quite two hours on that trail but was very happy with so many bird sightings and good photos.  This post starts off with the four warbler species I captured, the first two that are bird lifers for me!  Woohoo!!  šŸ’ƒ šŸ’ƒ

There were many Yellow Warblers, so here’s a few more of them in habitat.  Such a gorgeous sunshiny yellow!
