Each year ELIAS schedules a number of field trips during the month of May. This year we have 10 set up, with today being the first. It was a fine day weather wise, but "form" held forth re: the birds! We don't get the early influx of species, as do our cousins up west, coming up with just 15 species. Our most notable bird was C. Raven, the 2nd year in a row for this location. We did get 5 species of warblers, namely Yellow-rumped, Palm, Black & White, Ovenbird and Northern Waterthrush. All 8 "trippers" were glad to be out and about...let the "fallouts" begin !
