Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] OSFL, warblers - Greene-Sullivan SF
Bob Kissel and I birded the state forest on northwest edge of Goose Pond, plus a couple of sites in GP itself, including Thousand Island Woods and GP4. Our best action was at the site below, with highlights of Olive-sided Flycatcher (2) and 14 warbler species.

Protocol: Traveling
1.0 mile(s)
Comments: With Bob Kissel. Birded along CR1475W north and south from T intersection with CR50S (by foot, about 150 yards total). CR1475 runs along west edge of GP12 and east edge of Greene-Sullivan State Forest. There was a great wave of warblers and other birds on both sides of the gravel road, with warblers visible in short to mid-height trees and branches (as well as in tall trees). The action continued for over an hour, with no stimulus needed from us. Weather cool, clear, and calm, 64 deg F at end.
