I spent just shy of 4 hours at Danville Conservation Area (Montgomery Co.) looking for little critters starting at sunrise, but I kept my ears open for the birds as we walked around.
My favorite bird was a male HOODED WARBLER that sang long enough to let me track him down for a brief sighting. The biggest surprise was a calling LESSER YELLOWLEGS flying over the parking lot as we were leaving! No idea where it was coming from/heading to,
but there wasn't much (any?) habitat for it in the immediate vicinity.
