Yes, it would have been difficult sitting on the Lost Lake bench this morning. At least the trail was dry enough to walk up to the lake.
There were a number of birds at Snug Harbor and the Lost Lake Trail, none out of the ordinary (although eBird tagged 3 Black-throated Green Warblers as unusually high). Others included a juvenile Red-shouldered Hawk and my nemesis vireo in the Hemlocks, singing slower than most Red-eyed's but never showing itself to be Blue-headed! A beautiful morning nonetheless.
Friday morning an old friend and I met at McGraft Park for a Covid picnic-table breakfast. During our meal, Red-headed Woodpeckers flew and called all around us!
