Enjoyed a pleasant evening yesterday 3/28 walking the trail along Huntingburg Lake. Highlights included a FOY Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, great views of a Hermit Thrush, Pine Warblers singing, and two Common Loons diving on the lake. While watching the Hermit Thrush, a surprised Orange-crowned Warbler flew up out of the brush and landed in a small bush just off the trail.
Oh, I also had a Beaver slap it's tail at me on a portion of the trail close to the lake -what fun!
