Sunday Research:Wood Thrush tales

Went out to Francis Slocum State Park to check on a Wood Thrush nest a local bird watcher found last week. Unfortunately, that was empty and, from the description, the nest probably had eggs. 

I was telling him that early in the season birds will often restart a nest nearby. A few minutes later, a male was heard and I found the nest with three eggs (below) in a few minutes. I've been using a GoPro on the end of a selfie stick and this seems to work really well for nest checking.
