Higbee Beach Birding - Friday, October 4th, 2013

Stop, look and listen at three locations yielded high-flying warblers, Northern Flickers flying every which way, and large numbers of Blue Jays occupying the skies and trees. The group got good looks at Black-and-white, Common Yellowthroat, Northern Parula, and Yellow-rumped Warblers, and a Brown Thrasher obligingly perched high for scope views. Three Eastern Meadowlarks flying close overhead were a special treat. Leaders: Mike Crewe, Chris Marks, Catherine Busch, Deb Payson, Kathy Horn, Roger Horn, Warren Cairo, and Carrie Bell.
