“Hope” is the thing with feathers, That perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, And never stops ... at all - Emily Dickenson

Prothonotary Warbler

Until two weeks ago I had never seen a Prothonotary Warbler. Its range just doesnt reach 1410 Oakwood and in the past we left Texas before they arrived on their way north. 

I love Wood Warblers and a couple of weeks ago I was fortunate enough to see both a Hooded Warbler and a Prothonotary Warbler for the first time. Yesterday we were at the Sheepsheads Lots on South Padre Island. The Lots are about half a square block that has been saved from the commercial development that has spread across the island like a cancer.

This posting is a little over the top with photos, but I give you ...
