Birdy Morning

Leading the morning bird walk at Hog Island again this morning, we finally had a very birdy time. In fact, it might be the birdiest morning I've had on the Hog--literally dozens of birds around all the time, you couldn't really look at the trees without seeing movement. Unfortunately, at first it was so foggy you couldn't really see the birds all that well. Even when they were in the open, you couldn't really see colors or patterns, so it was tough going.

Finally, as the light got better, we got many Blackburnian Warblers, Northern Parulas, Black-throated Green Warblers, and American Redstarts. A few Black-throated Blue Warblers were around as well. Cedar Waxwings flew in and out of view, and a tantalizing flock of White-winged Crossbills kept flying over and landing...somewhere.

Followed up with a nice fresh fruit and French toast breakfast, it was a nice start to the day at the camp.
