Robin and I arrived shortly after 9 am and joined the rest of the (growing) crowd on the boardwalk. A Cerulean Warbler, Pine Warbler and Prairie Warbler had been photographed here yesterday while Pt. Mouillee was making me her bitch. I was hoping that one of these birds might show this morning.
I continued on around toward the east end of the boardwalk, and managed to pick up some nice-but-obstructed views of Winter Wren, Swamp Sparrow, Blue-headed Vireo, and more Hermit Thrushes. Several Brown Thrashers made brief appearances but would not allow any photos. Singing Carolina Wrens and a Red-tailed Hawk had me searching the treetops w/o success.
So, the birds are starting to arrive, and anticipation is building for the next 3 weeks of birding.
