A Touch of Color at Higbee
Ah, May. When Vince Elia's text message about an "excellent fallout at Higbee Beach" came through this morning, I was already on my way out the door. And Higbee was excellent, all right: I personally found 20 warbler species, and missed some species that others had. A Kentucky Warbler popped up right in front of Vince and I, but my best bird was one I only heard: A Bicknell's Thrush, which sang and gave a flight call near the parking lot. Multiple Black-throated Green, Chestnut-sided, Magnolia, and Canada Warblers were some of the other highlights.
