Had some excellent up-close views over the course of the day Monday around the pondless waterfall/steam. Here is the rundown:
red-eyed vireo n. parula (m and f) blackpoll (m and f) bt blue (m and f) magnolia yellow rump canada chestnut-sided bay breasted (m and f) yellowstart tennessee
Most of these were bathing in the bottom of the stream. While viewing the Tennesse bathing, the Magnolia flew in next to it. Later, it was the Bay-breasted joined by the “Yellowstart”. The Tennessee sang incessantly in the trees without being viewable, so we were really glad when at last it came in to bathe. These four birds all took baths lasting over 2 minutes.
