Hot Springs National Park sits on the demarcation line of many migration and wintering patterns for a wide variety of birds. During the past four years I have actively recorded the many species that breed, migrate through and stay year-round in the park. As many birds migrate back to Central and South America for the winter our year round winged residents become more visible in the changing leave. Lovely gray and buff colored birds that are less visible in the heavy summer canopy are revealed in the colorful autumn transition. I was very happy to see this tiny juvenile Blue-Headed Vireo and hope to hear its song often through the colder months on the trail.
Love to ALL!
