Team T-BIRD has the best day ever!!
Temperature ranged from 45.0 – 61.5 degree’s F and the weather would quickly change from cloudy, to sunny, and rain would go from drizzle to downpour. This was one of the worse days for take pictures and I was only able captured a few decent photos. You might ask “so, why was this the best day ever??”
Team T-BIRD (Tim Baird and myself) helped celebrate Jamestown Audubon Society’s 50th anniversary by participating in their Bird-A-Thon. This is our teams first year in chasing the birdies and we decided to visit the Allegany State Park/Allegheny River area. We located 26 species of warblers (not including the Brewster’s Warbler we located), 5 species of vireos and 6 species of thrush. Ok, I will stop teasing you . . . . we located a total of 110 species of birds for their Bird-A-Thon!! Without a doubt this was my best birding day ever and I never expected in finding so many warbler species!! So thanks everyone who sponsored our team and your donations are going towards the Education Programs at Jamestown Audubon. I will post more details on our best day ever early next week after this weekends ASP Geobash 2 event!! Heck, it probably would be easier to just tell you what we didn’t see!
BTW: Today I had
