While there certainly were big "explosions" last night, according to the radar maps, there was rather minor fallout at Ledges State Park. This morning's nuclear blast winds didn't leave me with any radiation poisoning, but at least a few findings heated me up a little.
Along Lost Lake Trail at 9 AM, woods were almost empty until reaching the south side of Lost Lake, where habitat was protected from horrendous gales by the surrounding hills. So there were a few small pockets of migrants, and I saw things similar to what Karl Jungbluth reported earlier today from his other side of the state park.
My findings near the lake:
- Orange-crowned Warblers (3)--FOY - American Redstart (1)--FOY - House Wren (4)--FOY - Winter Wren (1)--FOY
Other species I saw here 2 weeks ago, but not again until today, included:
