New River Birding & Nature Festival. My blogging may be a bit spotty, as we hook up our groups at 6 am, and are out canvassing fascinating habitats all day long.
Other trips go to easier spots to see the Swainson's Warbler, and most festival attendees do. But there are great birds and birding around every bend.
And that was just one trip, today. Tomorrow I'll be part of a special Cerulean Warbler expedition, and then off to the legendary Cranberry Glades Botanical Area the following two days. Many more interesting finds will be made, and I'll slap some of them on here as time permits.
