Evening at Great Meadows NWR

I heard my first ever Black-Billed Cuckoo calling as soon as I got out of the car!  Here's a website where you can listen to the call.  It's an awesome sound.

I am happy to report that the Yellow Warbler who built her nest in a questionable location right next to the path is still there and sitting on her nest!  You can just barely see her in the photo above, and I guess the leaves have filled in a lot since I last saw her.  I didn't want to stress her out by trying to get a better shot.   I'm still worried about how low she is to the ground.  Only time will tell.

Feeding frenzy?

or hungry mouths to feed.

88 degrees when I arrived and a cool 81 degrees when I left.....a hot walk!
