Montrose Point Bird Sanctuary

Hello Again!  

The reason this post is coming in so late is just because I wanted to finish the biggest week blog first.

Last week my mom took us to Montrose Point Bird Sanctuary to do a few hours of birding. When we got there, we found a few warblers right off the bat, such as Connecticut,

 other than Hermit, was seen. I also had a record number of American Redstarts at 50! Other than that, the hedge produced a Hooded Warbler, Blackburnian Warbler,

 Olive-sided Flycatcher, and Yellow-bellied Flycatcher. So I would say, It was a great day!

Good birding!
