Got to spend the morning in the blind beside the bubbler/stream.  Soon after 
sunrise the action began with 13 turkeys standing in the stream for a quick 
drink.  They scared off a striking Male Summer Tanager who really wanted to 
take a bath.  Other birds of note:  Golden-winged Warbler, Female Chestnut-
sided Warbler, Yellow-throated Vireo, Female Scarlet Tanager, Male Baltimore 
Oriole.  Birds were busy at the bubbler, not 5 minutes went by without 
someone diving in for a bath or drink.  Had my fill of the heat by 10 a.m. and 
packed up and left.  Got some really nice images though, will share those 
later.  

Hope to spend most of the day Monday in the blind next to the 
bubbler/stream.  With the forecasted weather, perhaps more birds will be 
visiting us soon.
