We were not off to an auspicious start today, it started raining just in time for the tour. Happily that did not last, and the birding was great! From our meeting place we were able to look down on a robin's nest, I did not see eggs but maybe there will be some next week. It would be great to have such an easy view of eggs and hatchlings. On our way into the park we saw a ruby-crowned kinglet and a hermit thrush, they were flitting about like mad. It was pretty fun listening to so many people give directions to the birds. And fun chiming in.
Paul had scouted out this pine warbler for us, it was high up in the tree but it sang for us and was very pretty. As you can see from the sky int he picture, the rain had cleared up and it was sunny!
Also at the upper lobe was this wood duck, being gorgeous.
