Recap- Powers Park/Palm Point
Twelve of us hit Powers Park "running". Well, maybe not so fast, but a slow amble. It was very productive. A total of 50 species can be seen at this ebird link,.We birded the canal with a good list of 38 or so and continued around the left side on Lakeshore where we hit a bonanza of warblers. Black and White, Tennessee, Bay-breasted, Common Yellowthroat, American Redstart, Palm, Yellow-throated. Here we also got to see two Baltimore Orioles. I talked with a gentleman who lived across from this area who gave us permission to go out on a very long dock. He has given us permission in the future to again check this area. We continued to Palm Point to view the "Vulture tree", but perseverance gave us a pair of Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers. A break for lunch and off to the Overlook on 441 with no results and then on to Bolens Bluff. This had many American Redstarts in store for us. Mosquitoes got the best of Tom and I, but Jim & Eileen had sprayed and continued on. I hope they make it back!!!!!!!!!!
