This morning's Bird hike produced a few birds including our FOY Palm Warblers. Yesterday I walked to see where we might walk due to high water in many areas so this list has a couple of birds from yesterday, but not seen today. I walked with a new birder who got to see 5 birds she had not seen before. What a delight!
