Pleasant, if too early in the year to be muggy, birding this AM at this NR. I had visited a couple times a few years ago but now it is an easy drive from Zanesville so I imagine I will bird here often.
Took some digging, but did well on warblers, 14 species, mostly singles. Prize was male Mourning Warbler. Oddly, no Yellow-rumpeds or B&Ws!
Also picked up my FOS Scarlet Tanager, a glowing male. Hermit & Swainson’s Thrushes. Family of Carolina Wrens & House Wren. Indigo Buntings. Red-eyed & White-eyed Vireos.
Red-shouldered Hawk being harassed by Blue Jays. Cooper’s Hawk.
O/w, the usual suspects.
