This morning after breakfast I went over to the Millpond and then up Hawk Creek. Chimney Swifts were common until the woods were entered. They were seen either high up or low down indifferently.
Red-eyed & Yellow-throated Vireos were very abundant. I saw and heared them everywhere. Other birds however were scarce. The only thing I shot was a Hairy Woodpecker. It had very little white on the back.
Saw a Black & White Warbler with a flock of Chicadees. I shot at it but did not secure it.
