That all changed after arriving at Hillman.
As I had left the shorebird cell, I noted a small vireo in the wooded area between the shorebird cell and wetland cell. Then, a small group of American birders walked by me and one of them started pishing to see what was around. Yellow, Yellow rumped, Magnolia, Chestnut sided, and even Wilsons all came out with ease. A small blue headed vireo was also brought out. It was pretty awesome!
The birders were like, wow... that was great but then left. I lingered around though to see what else was around. Good thing, because I found a female Prothnotary, Cereulean, Blackburnian and Bay Breasted warbler in the next twenty minutes. I also saw a Canada & Blackpoll warbler. It was pretty amazing!
This Bay breasted was very obliging. Staying in the same tree for the whole time. I walked away from him!
Cerulean Warbler is #241 for me. An exciting, self-discovered lifer!
I soon after went home. Rondeau and this trip wiped me out!
