On the way from Ogden to Hampton this morning, I stopped for a 1/2 hour bird hike at Brandrup's Timber (county conservation area), a few miles north of Webster City. Within a 2-minute walk from the parking area into the edge of nearby woods, I started seeing *Blue-gray Gnatcatchers* (FOY) everywhere in the branches, plus almost countless numbers of *Ruby-crowned Kinglets*. Another FOY was a *Black-and-white Warbler. *There were also a couple of *Orange-crowned Warblers*, a *Swainson's Thrush*, several *Wild Turkeys* and some other small birds flitting out of sight. Didn't have time to stay & keep searching for more species, but I'll bet the woods probably had a lot of other things to see.
