Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Hawthorn Orchard: May 10th
This morning, I made a quick run through the Hawthorn Orchard in-between the rain showers.

Not too much, but a male HOODED WARBLER was very cooperative for me. The Hooded Warbler was located near the Northwest entrance to the Hawthorn Orchard, right off the East Ithaca Recreation Way, along the hillside that slopes down on the West side of the pond below the Black Oak Lane townhouses. The bird was singing periodically and foraging on or near the ground.

Last night I did some trail clearing at the Hawthorn Orchard along the entire North Ravine trail and at the two Northeast trailhead entrances into the Hawthorn Orchard. Makes for a little easier navigation. Definitely wear muck boots when birding here, it’s pretty wet and muddy.

Below is my complete list from this morning.
