Subject: Lake Fayetteville - May 5th - Warblers
I was at Lake Fayetteville today from 9:45am to 3:30pm - started at the boat dock and walked east to the far end of the environmental center trails. Bird of the day was a beautiful Veery on the wooded trail going through the disc golf course - a nice change from all the Swainson's Thrushes I've been seeing over the last few weeks. 19 warbler species were observed today, with high counts for several species. Flycatchers are also passing through in larger numbers. A pair of White-eyed Vireos were building a nest at the eastern end of the EC trail. 85 species observed in total.
