We started by breaking my personal streak of it raining on every trip I lead. While it started out a little cold, it ended up being a beautiful sunny and warm day. A total of 7 members were there for the walk and got many of the usual suspects.
The Brown Thrasher showed up, perched high on a tree and sang for a good hour. We scoped it so everyone got good looks. Field Sparrows were there in numbers and singing their hearts out along with Song, White-throated, Swamp and Savannah. We had great looks at a Hermit Thrush and probably the biggest surprise was an early Blue-headed Vireo. We only had a few Palm Warblers and a single Pine. Barn and Tree Swallows were both present. We left, deciding to take a look for the Meadowlark on Moody Bridge Rd and, while we did not see him, we did get to see 2 male Kestrels in the fields and on one of the nest boxes. There were 35 species in total. All-in-all, it was a really nice morning of birding with a total of 35 species.
