What began as a dud birding day turned out entirely different at the end. Our group of 21 met at the Archeological Mounds site. The tides should have been better, but they did not favor us. We travelled to the mud flats with no better luck. Our next trip was out to the Museum and still it was not great. The same held for the museum. It appeared to be hopeless. We just opted for lunch. Many in this group were not to be deterred and went back to some of the earlier spots and viola. They all seemed to score. The museum gave up some warblers and others scored with additional sightings. The tally for the day was 50 species. Photo courtesy of Bob Ross.
