Stoney Creek (Wintergreen) 4/21-22/15

All photos are Marshall Faintich

I did a late afternoon hike on Tuesday and a morning hike today here in Stoney Creek. The only warblers I saw were a couple of Yellow-rumped, but I did get a quick view of an Osprey as well as one of my best ever photos of a Carolina Wren. My total number of avian species for the two hikes was 30+.

I heard a familiar song in the Allen Creek Nature Preserve, but it took me a couple of minutes to remember what bird it was, and then I got a quick view of it - my FOS White-eyed Vireo.

While hiking on one of the less traveled trails, I thought that it really wasn't much more than a deer trail. Less than a minute late, look at what I saw.

And finally, my wife, Alice, has been fighting with a large rabbit about its eating her new flowers. Alice, just don't follow it down a rabbit hole, especially if the rabbit has a pocket watch :-)
