MAS Field Trip to Pheasant Branch - Results!

(click on image for larger version)

About 20 participants enjoyed the gorgeous weather and great birding during this morning's Madison Audubon field trip into Pheasant Branch Conservancy. Some of the birds were difficult to spot through the leaves but we still tallied nearly a dozen warbler species, including GOLDEN-WINGED WARBLER and CANADA WARBLER. Other uncommon gems included an OLIVE-SIDED FLYCATCHER and a YELLOW-BELLIED FLYCATCHER. When I woke up this morning and checked NexRad I figured the birds would be plentiful. Thanks to everyone who came and made the field trip a success!
