Finally, at 8am, I paid my entrance fee and rushed to the youth camp. Birds were everywhere! You couldn't hold your binoculars up without seeing birds. One of the first birds I was able to photograph was a cooperative Eastern Wood-Pewee that looked a little miserable.
|Gray-cheeked Thrush (broken, pale eyering, no warm tones on face, and a gray cheek)|
|Swainson's Thrush (full eyering, warm tones on face)|
Probably the best looking show-stopper went to this male Magnolia Warbler. I forgot just how sexy this warbler is!
It was a very productive day and one of my best days of birding in a long time. I hope I can catch another good day at St. George before I leave.
