While on an expedition to Hollow Road in Brandon to look for butterflies, we managed find a respectable number of birds. 
 
A Blue-winged Warbler, noted as such, was only heard so it's true identity is not known. Eastern Towhees and Field Sparrows were singing away. An Eastern Kingbird was tending to a nest with three young, eyes still closed, but necks craned for incoming meals. House Wrens, American Robins and Common Yellowthroats had their bills filled with worms for young (except for one yellowthroat with only the legs of a daddy-longlegs hanging out of her beak).
