By the time I got there, the rain had gone away although it threatened most of my walk. I spent two hours walking along the boardwalk and tallied up 30 species seen. Not too shabby. The best of the birds was a drake Wood Duck that decided to take a quick flight in a circle from its hiding spot. I also spotted two Yellow-throated Warblers mixed in with groups of other warblers and Blue-gray Gnatcatchers. One of the 'other warblers' was a Black-and-White Warbler that was only a few feet away. Such an awesome place to walk and bird.
Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera even though I had some great looks at birds (afraid of the rain). So I'll post a couple of cloudy day feeder pictures. Oh and a few shots from the Bald Eagle nest that you can view live webcam coverage of.
