It was sunny, hot, and humid this morning, so I ended my hike here after 1-1/2 hours with 25 avian species. It's a good time to start seeing juveniles. I started off with a juvenile Double-crested Cormorant. Although often seen in central Virginia, they are rarely seen here in Old Trail. I also got my first Blue Grosbeaks of the year - an adult male and a juvenile male. I got a quick look at one of the Yellow-brested Chats and heard the other one, and got a quick look at one of the Yellow Warblers.

The juvenile Red-shouldered Hawks are out of the nest and perched on nearby branches, where they are calling for mama and papa to bring a meal.
