A very refreshing morning to be out and about. The good thing about the walk was no humidity and the trail all the way around was not flooded. We had to cancel last year due to water standing deep which made the trail impassable. A new member who had not been on the Eco property took some very nice photos. Gray Catbirds dominated as did the White-eyed Vireos There were at least 12 along the trail.
There were at least two Yellow Throated Warblers along with Common Yellowthroats. An American male Redstart darted out at the beginning. Butterflies were busy along the roadway. The white Peacock and Phaon Crescent butterflies were tasting the plants along the way. The nice surprise was the female Summer Tanager who sat still for good photos. An oddity was the Black Bellied Plover that flew over and was picked up on two different phones running Merlin. We tallied 29 species. Here is the ebird link to the species listed. https://ebird.org/checklist/S151427392 Photos courtesy of Lisa Graham
