Rockfish Valley 4/30/13

I went to the trail at mid-day, in between periods of light drizzle, to see if the Blue-winged Warbler was still there, and perhaps may have invited some of his relatives to visit him on the trail.

The BW Warbler was not there, but I did see 30 species, although two of them were not confirmed. I heard the po-po of what sounded to me like a Cuckoo, but could not find it, and I got a quick glimpse of what looked like a Louisiana Waterthrush as it jumped down into dense vegetation in the creek that runs into route 627 near the southern end of Glenthorne Loop.

I did see four other warbler species: Common Yellowthroat, Palm, Yellow-rumped, and a FOY trail warbler: Yellow.
