Subject:   Late Report from ORAS Saturday bird walk at Sandy Creek Nature Center - Athens-Clark County
Content-Type:   text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1


Apologies for not getting this out sooner. <Insert standard excuses here.> We had a nice morning out at the Sandy Creek Nature Center last Saturday. 13 souls braved the threat of yet another rainy Saturday to come out for the Cooks Trail Cleanup walk. Happily, the rain held off for most of the morning and we didn't get showers until around noon. Sadly, those few showers were about all we got!

The theme for Saturday's walk apparently was Prothonotary Warblers - we had 11 of them some from closer than 10 feet while singing. Most were in pairs. Other highlights included good looks at Black-throated Blue Warblers as well as singing Yellow-breasted Chats and a Swainson's Warbler.

We counted 61 species, and here's our highlights from the day.
