Common Yellowthroat at Greenbury Point

It was a beautiful morning, with temps in the 70s and low humidity. As it’s a holiday weekend, I decided to stay close to home to avoid the traffic, and went back to the Nature Center and Possum Point. It was an OK day, but I’m not seeing the variety of migrants others are writing about.
