An early morning chilly and foggy hike produced a decent influx of  migrant 
nesters like parulas(3),yellow-throated(4) ,Louisana  
watethrush(3),gnatcatchers this morn along the River  and Grotpeter trails  at Castlewood SP.
 2 newly arrived BROAD-WING hawks were steamboat whistling away  as the 
perched in a cottonwood tree
 Sad to report that it looks like one of the red-shoulder hawk nests  along 
the river trail has been abandoned.Saw some fish crows picking  through it 
this morn
 The surprise bird of the morning was a wild turkey.Although common  along 
the Chubb Trail side of Castlewood SP turkeys are way scarce in the main  
section of the park due to higher pedestrain/bike/dog traffic
 
 - higher numbers of migrating kinglets and brown creepers
-  2 singing hermit thrushes along the Grotpeter trail
-Found  a pair of nesting phoebes
