The Cottage List Continues to Grow

July 2, 2012
It was family time at the cottage for the long weekend.  Although not much time was devoted to birding, we did get a Black-throated Blue Warbler (heard in the swamp beside us) and a Scarlet Tanager that came right into our yard!  A Black-throated Green Warbler also made a surprise visit to the feeders to see what the Purple Finches and Rose-breasted Grosbeaks were interested in.  There was also an unusually high number of Hairy and Downy Woodpeckers prowling the feeders.

On the lake, we had a young fawn swimming across to an island and our first Common Loon chick of the season.
