This was the perfect day to be outdoors. Five people walked at Brunswick Landing with bright sunshine and a light breeze. Our bird of the day should have been the Brown Thrasher but he was not cooperative. We did have both a Broad-winged Hawk and a Red-shouldered Hawk fly relatively low over us so as to be seen at the same time (they were not together however) giving us wonderful looks. We could not find an Eastern Meadowlark on the airstrip. Here are the 39 birds seen of heard (H):
Double-crested Cormorant – seen over the Ando River driving in and out.
Hairy Woodpecker – with one young
Eastern Wood-Pewee (H)
Empid Fylcatcher – seen and called but id uncertain, maybe Willow?
