Having not spent much time in Iowa during the summer months, I hadn't seen several of the breeding warblers here in central Iowa. Today we went over to Ledges State Park to see if we could find Yellow-throated Warblers and Louisiana Waterthrushes.
Shortly after arriving, we tracked down this LOUISIANA WATERTHRUSH about 100 meters upstream from the first bridge:
It didn't take long before we heard several YELLOW-THROATED WARBLERS in the sycamores along the stream. Overall, it was a very cool area!
Some other species we had at Ledges SP included:
Great Crested Flycatcher
6 species of woodpeckers
Not a bird but still stunning none the less, I snapped a quick picture of this Jewelwing:
