My husband and I spent part of the afternoon at Scott Park again looking for birds. We saw another Black and White Warbler, many American Redstarts and some Hooded Warblers. We were bothered a little for the first time this year by mosquitoes. Not bad but enough that we sprayed ourselves.
We returned to my in-laws house in the woods and had a wonderful outdoors meal prepared by my father-in-law (a wonderful chef!) and then waited for the birds to come to us. They did. A beautiful Pileated Woodpecker, Cardinal, Chick-a-dee, Phoebe, and even a Wild Turkey! A Ruby-throated Hummingbird was perched on top of a dead stick on the very top of the tree over our table. He finally came down to drink just feet from us. A perfect end to a most perfect day.
