Saturday Morning Along the Maple River
I walked along the Maple River from DNR headquarters west to the snipe field and back yesterday morning. I encountered no jays, chicadees or titmice (go figure) but did count 44 species including Black-billed Cuckoo, Barred Owl, Ruby-throated Hummingbird, Alder, Willow and Great Crested Flycatcher (no Least), Eastern Kingbird, Yellow-throated Vireo, Eastern Bluebird, Wood Thrush, Blue-winged Warbler and Indigo Bunting.
The only picture worth posting is of a Leopard Frog who thought he was invisible on the snipe field path. Common Yellowthroats were thick there too!
No problem on no bird pictures, however, because when I got home I found Roger Newell's email loaded with them (and posted below).
