We helped lead a birding field trip around the Morgan Arboretum this morning – glorious weather and a satisfying 40 species ticked off by mid-morning. Not the best – that was three years ago with birds in the mid-50s including more warblers, in fact warblers hanging from the trees begging to be looked at, but good for all that. The birds included the first Bobolink of the year.
Great Crested Flycatcher
Black-throated Blue Warbler
