It’s spring at Brazos Bend State Park. The Northern Parula has arrived for the summer season and is competing with the White-eyed Vireo and Northern Cardinal for prime real estate in the only way he knows how — singing his heart out.
From the tippy-top of the mossy oak canopy, Parula’s song is the upward trill between the quirky Vireo quips and twerps and the Cardinal’s birdie-birdie-birdie calls.
It’s a break neck joy for all birders, more so for one with a 5-lb. camera on her face.
We are at a whopping 197 species stepping into
the spring migration month!
