Hi all I walked along Shindagin a hollow Rd this morning from north to south, from where the pavement ends to the balsam swamp and back. Pretty quiet relative to what it will be in another week. The highlight was an American Bittern foraging in the open at the balsam swamp. I’ve never seen one there before. A fair number of ovenbirds! The list I submitted to eBird is below. Fantastic morning!
