It did not rain. The temperature was not bad, humidity either. Ah but
the mosquitoes and the wet trail. Nevertheless seven people enjoyed a
walk in Sherwood Forest Conservation Area, Auburn this morning. We saw
many birds but most briefly. The two which stand out were a Veery and a
Chestnut-sided Warbler. Red-eyed Vireos and Pewees frequently sang but
we also had calling Ovenbirds and the Veery sang a number of times.
