 A few other birders and myself hiked down along the Castlewood Loop of the 
Chubb Trail on  a sunny but somewhat chilly daylight savings morning.
   Was hoping for some new migrants but was pretty quiet birdwise for the 
most part
  Some of the highlights included
  RED-SHOULDER hawk on nest(with at least one fledgling in there now)
  several BLUE-GREY GNATCATCHERS
  on territory LOUISANA WATERTHRUSHES
  only one WINTER WREN this morn
   A few song and swamp sparrows out in the field but there was one 
small,short-tailed,pale,'fly a little then drop' sparrow that was a very good lecontes 
candidate but we could never get a decent view of the bird.
  KINGFISHERS along the river
  at least one YELLOW-THROATED warbler sang weakly high up in a sycamore
   4 WILD TURKEY 
   several mixed flocks of feeding birds which usually consited of 
GOLDEN-CROWN KINGLETS,BROWN CREEPERS,JUNCOS,FOX and WHITE-THROATED sparrows
  started warming up pretty good by the end of the hike
  Hopefully we will get a good turnover of birds this week.
