I'd like to recognize Cat Abbot for her great find of the Prothonotary at
Buckner Preserve/Bald Mtn last week. Her discovery is a good example of how
being in the moment, quiet, and paying attention pays off!
AND: What an obliging bird!
Sue and I had been talking about how the habitat the warbler was in seemed
perfect for the bird when we noticed it gathering moss off of a tree in the
Poultney River and entering a tree cavity (Sue will add photos to eBird
entry)...it gave us the impression that the bird will stick around if a mate
shows up....and he wouldn't be the only one that is lucky (a gem for more
birders to enjoy).
