Stoney Creek (Wintergreen) 5/8/12

All photos are Marshall Faintich


Dark clouds and low fog persisted here, and the weather isn't supposed to clear until Thursday. I did some birding here in Stoney Creek, and saw 23 species. Part of this morning's birding included a drive up Crawford Knob to about a 2200 foot elevation. I heard a warbler, probably a Blackpoll, but it was too dark and foggy to locate it, and there was a light mist in the air, so I headed home. The highlight of the morning was a stop along the way to photograph one of the fox kits with my good camera and lens. Even in the limited sunlight, a few of the photos came out okay.
