lazy summer walk

Its been a while since I took an early morning walk in Prospect.The desire to experience the coolness and also see if anything came early with a north wind last night was motivation for me.

Unsurprisingly, I didn't see anything regarding a warbler up on Lookout Hill. Instead the abundance of American Robins feeding upon choke Cherry tree fruits is evident. My highlight though at the north end of Butterfly Meadow, was a GREAT CRESTED FLYCATCHER that perched up high for a moment,evidently one of the park breeders. Later on  lower ground of south Lookout, another breeder HOUSE WREN appeared in thick brush.

In a few weeks maybe less perhaps the first wave of warblers might occur.In2015, the second week of August had a good turnout of warblers.
