Parula - 1 May 2009

I stumbled on this NORTHERN PARULA yesterday afternoon at the refuge.  As I understand it, there are less than 20 records of this species from the panhandle of Nebraska:

Some other new arrivals included Bonaparte's Gull, Forster's Terns, Spotted Towhees, Black-crowned Night-Herons, White-crowned Sparrows, Orange-crowned Warbler, Yellow-rumped Warbler (both Myrtle and Audubon's), Ruby-crowned Kinglet, etc.  I also had a Great Egret between the refuge and Route 2.
