Description: The July 2nd Sat bird walk started with a sprinkle of rain, but ended with the sun shining. There were seven observers, obeying all COVID protocols. We tallied forty species. Highlights were a Red-tailed Hawk being "mobbed" by Red-eyed Vireos, a Ruby-throated Hummingbird and an American Redstart. The Barred Owl made an appearance. The Scarlet Tanager posed on a tree branch. We also saw a Barn Swallow feeding 3 young. It was also a treat for me to hear a pair of Veery's singing very close to each other. - Report by Bill Deininger.
