Higbee Beach Birding - Saturday, September 20th, 2013

Higbee Beach was quiet this morning after another night of southernly winds. However, we were able to find a few pockets of activity and ended up with ten types of warblers. The highlight for many was an extended view of a Worm-eating Warbler searching for caterpillars among dead leaves close to the path. Flyover Rose-breasted Grosbeak and Common Nighthawk were also appreciated by all. Yellow-billed Cuckoo and Red-eyed Vireo were also seen. Leaders: Mike Crewe, Catherine Busch, Chris Marks, and Megan Crewe.
