June 11 – Another Veery Good Day

Today we re-explored the same roads and trails as before. The picture shows Louann and Steve at a lovely marsh near Hyder.

Highlights on Hyder today included two different Black-headed Grosbeaks.

We also got a better view of a MacGillivray’s Warbler today, even though it was mostly not visible and we could just track its progress by seeing wiggling leaves.

We also got a better view of Cedar Waxwings, birds difficult to find up in Anchorage.

In addition to seeing common birds and seeing again some of the birds that were new for my year since we’ve arrived in Hyder, I saw my first CASSIN’S VIREO today. Steve got good pictures of it but I did not.

Probably the best birding today included a better view and photos of the earlier seen Veery, as we heard and saw it sing.
