This morning was relatively comfortable and certainly dry. Ten of us
walked the Fitzgerald Preserve in Brunswick. The Clay-colored Sparrow
did not make an appearance. However, Prairie Warblers, Eastern Towhees,
and Field Sparrows were constantly singing, but seldom visible. Common
Yellowthroats were also in abundance.
