Subject: Oct 5, 2019 17 Acre Woods
Greetings all

Today I meet up with Stacy Barbour from Raleigh and we birded the eBird Hotspot - 17 Acre Woods in Durham Co NC.

I got there around 0645 hrs and was just in time to hear a Barred Owl calling.

With the winds over night blowing in cooler weather at last we had a great day seeing 40 individual Warblers of 9 species.

We had a 3 Thrush day with plenty of America Robins with most of them being juveniles, Eastern Bluebirds and a Swainson’s Thrush.

Stacy found the 3 YB Sapsuckers together which I saw but he also saw a BH Vireo that I did not see.

I added two species of Warblers to my Durham Co List the Black-Throated Blue and the Cape May taking me to 158 for the county.

Great Birding Always
