Research day 2: Nescopeck State Park

Today, the crew and I went off to Nescopeck State Park to listen for Wood Thrush and to work on the grassland food web project. 

It was a complete bust for Wood Thrush but it was a nice afternoon and great for collecting ticks. I also found a Cerulean Warbler, which is a very uncommon bird for the area. Veery were everywhere along with Least Flycatchers and there was an Alder Flycatcher in our "field B". The Tree Swallows were on eggs so we'll be back in two weeks.

In the meantime, this Blue-gray Gnatcatcher wonders what you're up to!
