Open Birding # 1 Results!

Black-throated Green Warbler

It was a very soggy outing for this season's first Open Birding date. Northwest winds returned, so I had low expectations for new arrivals. However, a few returning warblers were observed while our group birded in the rain. New for me was a handsome Black-throated Green Warbler and an Ovenbird signing its teacher teacher teacher song.

The next Open Birding date at the creek corridor is May 6th at 6:00AM. Hopefully we'll have better weather!
