Before the lightening and downpour chased me, there were birds everywhere. The number of NORTHERN WATERTHRUSHES was a big highlight for me with at least a dozen between the shrubs along the field edge, the standing water in the woods, and the stream edges.
FOY for me included BALTIMORE ORIOLE, a couple of VEERYS and a MAGNOLIA WARBLER. Complete list below. Rain ruined what I'm confident would've been a legendary find. :)
