also reported late in day : LOUISIANA WATERTHRUSH back of Lily Pool ( Ktoomey), ORANGE CROWNED WARBLER bathing in the Ravine ( Dennis Hrehowsik, Bobbi Manian, Kristin Costello )also seen by this crew immature BALD EAGLE flyover Rink.

During my walk home a section of the Ravine creek was a bird bath spot for warblers.Just before the creek empties into the pool, 7 warblers bathed in the slower running water cluttered with leaves. Gorgeous views of Yellow rumped warblers--4 at one time, bathe along with Black & White and Palm Warblers An Eastern Towhee joined in. Kathy Toomey also watched the scene. It's amazing to see the color come out off the Yellow rumped, feathers all fluffed up while in the water. Seriously!

3 Wood ducks remain on the Upper Pool.There's a possibility of the wood ducks nesting inside the fallen box on the little island according to an eyewitness.
