Above Par Birding at Cox Hall Creek WMA - Sunday, August 20th, 2017

Cedar Waxwings are late breeders, due to their preference for summer-ripening fruit, and we saw, and more often heard, them throughout the walk this morning. A couple of mixed warbler flocks were on the move, feeding as they went, and included American Redstarts, Black-and-white, Pine and Yellow Warblers, and also a Blue-winged and a Nashville Warbler. Leaders: Kathy Horn, Roger Horn, Janet Crawford, and Shaun Bamford.
