On Sunday, nine hearty souls from Albany, Columbia, and Rensselaer Counties gave their rain gear a workout while birding the Powell Sanctuary in a steady 40 degree rain. Not one of these troopers bailed early even when given the opportunity, and our efforts were rewarded with a FOY Blackburnian Warbler, the only warbler seen the entire morning. We had a nice mix of sparrows including Chipping and White-throated and Eastern Towhee was heard. Most of us got decent looks at Brown Creeper and Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. I’m still hoping lead a trip to this lovely site sometime in nice weather. Maybe next year!
