I was on the trail this morning from 8:00 to 10:00, and the trail had quite a bit of avian activity all the time I was there. However, I only saw 33 avian species, so we are still a bit shy of what I would call very good birding on the trail (40 to 50 species), or great birding (50+ species) like we had last September with 70+ species days there.
Common Yellowthroats were singing in the bog area and all around the small pond on Glenthorne Loop where they nest every year. I caught a quick glance of three warblers in the brush along the east side of Reids Creek, and was able to get a few photos for identification. They look to me like male and female Prairie Warblers, and a Yellow-breasted Chat. The YB Chat usually spends the entire summer in that area of the trail.
