In the area of the Oak savanna restoration I found quite a few good birds.
I was in a momentary quandary when I heard both the Towhee and the
Gnatcatcher almost at the same time. I finally calmed down enough to locate
both of them. In the same general area I also found numerous YR warblers
and a single black & White. Interestingly, I did not find any warblers in
the campground. All of them were on the mid-slope areas. Areas that had
trees above and below me. The morning hike turned out to be quite nice.
Saturday evening I also heard six woodcocks displaying. I couldn't believe
I hadn't brought a flashlight to really see them dancing.
Happy to see back were the field sparrows, eastern meadowlark, RC kinglet. A
Tom Turkey showing off for the ladies was also great fun to watch. There
were no longer any juncos. They had been quite numerous on Monday. I also
saw a Sandhill Crane on Monday.
