We had a large group of birders for the July 2021 second Saturday of the month bird walk. Thirty-five observers gathered together for the July walk. The walk started a few minutes early with the appearance of a Yellow-throated Vireo, singing and bouncing around several trees. The Vireo gave some of us great looks.

Description: We had a large group of birders for the July 2021 second Saturday of the month bird walk. Thirty-five observers gathered together for the July walk. The walk started a few minutes early with the appearance of a Yellow-throated Vireo, singing and bouncing around several trees. The Vireo gave some of us great looks. The weather was great, sunny and in the low 70's. We ended the walk after 3 1/2 hours of observations. Forty five species were tallied by the group. Many of the expected species were observed. Highlights were as follows. Five Ruby-throated Hummingbirds were seen. The American Redstart teased us with brief appearances. A Scarlet Tanager called from high above but was never seen. An Indigo Bunting sat on a high branch and sang for several minutes. The best highlight was an Acadian Flycatcher on a nest, close to the trail and very easy to see. - Report by Bill Deininger.
