Cox Hall Creek WMA - Sunday, September 14th, 2014

Ten species of warblers, all behind the Willow Oak leaves, or the Sweet Gum leaves - we could see the leaves well. But people persisted and the birds kept coming. Black-and-white Warblers and Northern Parulas really put on a show, while the Cape May and Chestnut-sided Warblers did their best to dine in private. American Goldfinches are loving the sunflowers over there and many are already in the browns and beiges of winter. The Blue Grosbeak that sat up at the end of the walk, however, was still vibrantly blue and rust.  Leaders: Kathy & Roger Horn, Janet Crawford, Cindy & Shaun Bamford, Deb Payson, and Carrie Bell.
