Rockfish Valley Trail 7/2/14

All photos are Marshall Faintich

It was already 85 degrees and quite muggy when I arrived at the trail at 9:30 this morning. Most of the birds were hunkered down in the shade of dense vegetation, and when I left a little more than one hour later, it was already 90 degrees. I was able to log 20 common summer avian species.
