Frontera Audubon Thicket, 10/17/09

Fall was finally in the air this morning at Frontera Audubon Thicket with a cool, fresh breeze blowing from the north. Turkey vultures and late Broad-winged Hawks were headed south. Saw my first Blue-headed Viero of the fall. There were lots fewer warblers than my last couple of visits. Here's an American Redstart.

Anhingas are unusual at Frontera but there's been a few hanging around lately.

There are tons of Queen butterflies at Frontera but not a lot else.

However I did managed to see this Malachite though it's not much of a picture.
