Waterthrush afoot

Intent on finding a water thrush during my short lunch hour,I succeeded. When I stood at the back gate of the Lower Pool, a quick low flyby confirmed my suspicion that a WT flew by. From the other side of a downed timber in the water, the bird came towards me over that log and it turned out to be correctly  a NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH. A personal fall first warb for the season,and I'm on my way to a hopeful great birding fall.

On the Upper Pool , 6 WOOD DUCKS are around, 2 out ion the water feeding on duckweed ( of course) and 4 sort of hidden on the back shores of the island.

good birding ...-KB
