[birdky] redstarts and more at the Arboretum in Lexington

 

Just returned from a tree ID hike to the woods here at the Arboretum where I
work, and while there I became distracted by a great many American Redstarts
and an assortment of unidentified fall warblers.  Didn't have my binoculars
(why would I need them for trees?), so all I could do was watch and listen.
Though they made no sound, the field marks were obvious even without
binoculars.

If you go, I suggest the black cherry trees - almost all of the activity I
got close to was in a black cherry that was right next to the path.  The
birds were active and quite bold.
