Ovenbirds were singing loudly in two spots along the trail, near where it intersects with Sassafrass Trail. This must be established territory, because I've also heard them here the last few hikes. I have not yet had the pleasure of being able to spot one, though.
I was pleasantly surprised to see 4-5 butterflies (all the same kind) and a couple of dragonflies.
