Rockfish Valley Trail 5/7/12

All photos are Marshall Faintich


There was complete cloud cover this morning. Low clouds hung around the mountains like gray wisps of pulled cotton. The trail only had moderate avian activity, and I only logged 26 species. Highlight was my FOY Eastern Wood Pewee, and my FOY-RVT Yellow-breasted Chat. The single Chat was the only warbler I saw this morning.
