I took a chance today and drove the 140 miles to Bird Phinizy Swamp Nature Center. I was rewarded right away By seeing what I thought was a Virginia Rail displaying. It turned out to be A Clapper rail.
On the same Board Walk stroll to the visitor Center I heard Many Prothonetary Warblers and Common Yellowthroats. Three River Otters and a Muskrat passed by before I could make it to the Visitor Center. On The Beaver dam Path I heard many Red eyed Vireos and A pair of Yellow Billed Cuckoos. Crossing the Bridge from Pond trail, I saw A male & Female Painted Bunting along with Indigo Buntings. A Moorhen Family was in one of the Fenced in Ponds. Finally while walking back tp the Parking lot I saw A pair of Blue Grosbeaks. There was much more but these were the highlights.
