Rockfish Valley Trail 8/9/11

All photos are Marshall Faintich

It was not as hot and muggy today, so I went to the trail at 2:45 this afternoon, and stayed until 4:15. The high 80's were still hot, although relatively cool given the high heat and humidity of the past week. I managed to see 17 species, with the highlight being a Willow Flycatcher.

Eastern Bluebird
Indigo Bunting
