During my morning walk around Schoolhouse Pond, I had a singing Kentucky Warbler. The bird was in the woods behind Darnell's Chance (the adjacent historic site) and was heard from the boardwalk as it sang repeatedly. Also of note was a breeding plumage Ruddy Duck. Also present were a Bald Eagle, calling Wood Duck, Eastern Wood Pewee, and several Northern Parula. As I finished my walk, the skies became about as dark as I have ever seen them (at least two hours after sunrise) and there was a loud, close, and bright flash of lighting. Good birding.
